Graham Parker, General Manager WQXR and Vice President of NYPR will moderate the Breakfast With Mugabe post-performance talk back, as the play celebrates its 100th performance and on the eve of president Robert Mugabe's 90th birthday celebration, Wednesday, February 19.
Mr. Parker joins an impressive list of journalists and educators who have moderated the play's Talk Back series over the last few weeks.
Parker oversees WQXR, the most listened to classical station in the country and New York's only all classical music station.
