THEATER TALK to Feature Joan Marcus, Tony Wrap-Up, Red Carpet Special, 6/13
This week, THEATER TALK features its annual Tony Wrap Up, an interview with legendary theater photographer Joan Marcus - honored with a special TONY this year - and an AndrewAndrew report from the TONY Red Carpet. Co-hosted by Michael Riedel of the New York Post and producer Susan Haskins, this episode premieres Friday, June 13 (2014) at 1 AM (Saturday morning) on Thirteen/PBS, and repeats in the New York metro area on CUNY TV* Saturday 6/14 at 8:30 PM, Sunday 6/15 at 12:30 PM, and Monday 6/16 at 7:30 AM, 1:30 PM, and 7:30 PM.
THEATER TALK's "Tony Team" Jesse Green of New York Magazine, Michael Musto of Out.com, and Patrick Pacheco of the Los Angeles Times Review the recent ceremony, including Hugh Jackman's hopping homage to Bobby Van. They also have their say on the trend that has more and more categories and winners' acceptances being dropped from the CBS telecast to make time for numbers from shows that may not even be on Broadway.
Also on the program, photographer Joan Marcus, recipient of a 2014 TONY® Honors Award, discusses her quarter century as a production photographer (over 300 Broadway shows alone), creating the expressive and masterful works that earned her this accolade. In addition, roving cultural correspondents AndrewAndrew report from this year's Tony Awards' Red Carpet, talking to nominees, (soon-to-be) winners and other stars.
