THEATER TALK Presents a Tribute to Ruby Dee, 6/13
In tribute to actress Ruby Dee, Theater Talk presents an encore episode featuring their 2002 interview with Ms. Dee and her husband, actor Ossie Davis, along with Philip Rose, the original producer of A Raisin in the Sun. The trio discuss the early days of bringing Lorraine Hansberry's classic play to the stage. Ms Dee created the role of Lena Younger, the same part that won Sophie Okonedo a 2014 Tony Award, last Sunday.
The program airs on Friday, June 13 at 9:30 AM, 2:30 AM and 7:30 PM on CUNY TV (channel 75.)
