Broadway & Me Goes on TV...
..well, kind of. The folks at The American Theatre Wing invited me to moderate some episodes of their long-running TV series "Working in the Theatre." The hour-long shows bring together panels of four or five actors, playwrights, directors, designers or other theater folks to talk about what it takes to make it in the business.
I’m thrilled and honored to play even a small part in that. And, in my first time in the moderator’s chair, I had the unbelievably good fortune to host a panel of stage legends that included F. Murray Abraham, Stacy Keach, Estelle Parsons and Lois Smith. They—and the stories they told—were, as you can imagine, fascinating.
Our episode will run here in New York City on CUNY TV, Channel 75, at
5 p.m. this Sunday, April 17. Set your Tivos. But if you miss us, the show will be repeated on Friday, April 22, at both 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.; on Saturday, April 23, at 11 a.m. and on Sunday, April 24, at 5 p.m. It also will be permanently archived, along with all the other episodes of "Working in the Theatre," on the Wing’s website: http://americantheatrewing.org/wit/
