Hosted by Louanne Moldovan



On stage, nightmares happen when you are wide awake.


What Doesn't Kill You...Better Make You Laugh.

Hosted by veteran theatre actress and director Louanne Moldovan, The Actor’s Nightmare is a weekly podcast featuring real horror stories from the stage, told by the actors who actually lived through them. Sometimes terrifying, sometimes hard to believe, usually very funny, The Actor’s Nightmare transports listeners from the safety of their world to the edge of a live stage where everything that can go wrong…often does.
