THEATER TALK Sets Spring Season Preview for this Weekend
Theater critics Adam Feldman (Time Out New York) and Jesse Green (New York Magazine), along with journalist Michael Musto (Out.com), join co-hosts Michael Riedel and Susan Haskins for a Spring Season 2014 Preview of Broadway and Off-Broadway productions scheduled to open before the Tony® Award nominations are announced in June.
The Spring Season 2014 Preview edition of THEATER TALK premieres in the New York metropolitan area beginning Friday, February 14 (2014) at 1 AM (Saturday morning) on Thirteen/PBS, and continues 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.
The barbs are quick and biting, and opinions wide-ranging, when this group gathers. The panel discusses the upcoming musical version of Woody Allen's Bullets Over Broadway, the revival of A Raisin in the Sun with Denzel Washington, The Bridges of Madison County with a score by Jason Robert Brown, If/Then with Idina Menzel, Violet with Sutton Foster, Hedwig and the Angry Inch with Neil Patrick Harris, All the Way with Bryan Cranston, Act One with Santino Fontana and Tony Shalhoub, Casa Valentina by Harvey Fierstein, the musical version of Rocky and even the upcoming NBC TV presentation of Peter Pan. They also comment on Beautiful, the Carole King musical that recently opened at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre. Nothing gets by this crowd!
