  • The cast is young, but ‘Cuckoo’s Nest’ isn’t child’s play

    Boston Globe - 04/13/2017

    Sam Mulcahy, the third-year Northeastern University student who is playing McMurphy, says he’s a little nervous about his performance being compared to Jack Nicholson’s Oscar-winning turn in the 1975 film, but Clark has encouraged him to make the role his own.

    “McMurphy has a primal rage that drives him, balanced by his outsized personality,” says Mulcahy. “What I love about this script is the way there’s a bait and switch: At first it seems to be about this quirky group of people, and then it becomes a much bigger story about thinking for yourself and not letting your situation define you.”
