Drama Desk nominee George Salazar (Be More Chill, Little Shop of Horrors, The Lightning Thief) has teamed up with producer Sam Pasternack to bring a new weekly telethon talk show to Youtube. Broadcast every Sunday, and featuring a new guest, Sundays on the Couch with George will raise money for organizations impacted by the pandemic.
Each week, Salazar will sit down with guests for traditional Q&A segments, non-traditional game segments, and the occasional musical performance. Throughout the show, viewers can make $10 donations via a GoFundMe link set up for a charity of the guest's choosing.
Money from the first episode will go towards Epic Players, a nonprofit, neuro-inclusive theatre company dedicated to creating professional performing arts opportunities and supportive social communities through the arts for persons living with developmental disabilities.
Salazar starred as Michael in the Off-Broadway and Broadway productions of Be More Chill, a role for which he received Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Award nominations and won a Lucille Lortel Award. He was most recently seen opposite Mj Rodriguez in the Pasadena Playhouse production of Little Shop of Horrors.
