Betty Buckley, Will Power & More Set for THEATER TALK's Season Premiere, 9/27
THEATER TALK, co-hosted for its 22nd consecutive year on New York television by Michael Riedel of the New York Post and producer Susan Haskins, premieres its 2013-2014 season by focusing on two new Off-Broadway successes, The Old Friends by Horton Foote at Signature Theatre and Fetch Clay, Make Man by Will Power at New York Theatre Workshop.
Featuring interviews with Old Friends cast members Betty Buckley, HAllie Foote, and Lois Smith, and Fetch Clay's playwright Will Power and cast member Ray Fisher, this new edition of THEATER TALK premieres in the New York metropolitan area Friday Sept. 27 (2013) at 1 AM (Saturday morning) on Thirteen/PBS, and repeats on CUNY TV* Saturday at 8:30 PM, Sunday at 12:30 PM, and Monday at 7:30 AM, 1:30 PM, and 7:30 PM.
Buckley, Foote, and Smith discuss their roles in The Old Friends, a never-before-produced play by the late Horton Foote (1916-2009) about the conflict between well-heeled landowners in a small Texas town and their less-fortunate kinfolk. They share their insights on what inspired him to write about these volatile characters, and they recall Foote as a strong collaborator with actors, though a gentle presence in rehearsals.
