TACT Announces Post-Show Discussion Series for NATURAL AFFECTION
Thanks to ongoing advances in communications and technology, no such similar blackout is likely today. Learn about the rapidly changing landscape of entertainment media - and in particular the rise of theater criticism on the Internet - in a wide-ranging conversation with William Wolf, a noted critic, author, journalist and lecturer. Wolf currently publishes the web-based Wolf Entertainment Guide, teaches film courses at New York University and was formerly the film critic for the Gannett newspaper chain, a critic and contributing editor for New York Magazine and a film critic for Cue Magazine.
Thursday, October 24 (immediately following the 7:30 pm performance)
THE LIFE AND WORKS OF William Inge:
A CONVERSATION WITH Peter Ellenstein AND Mike Wood
A Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright whose name is often mentioned alongside other literary giants of the 20th century such as Tennessee Williams and Arthur Miller, William Inge left behind a substantial body of work that continues to resonate in a powerful and personal way with audiences today.
Learn more about Inge's life and work from two people who are uniquely qualified to talk about his personal and artistic legacy -- Peter Ellenstein, artistic director of the William Inge Center for the Arts in Inge's hometown of Independence, Kansas, which sponsors the annual William Inge Theatre Festival; and Mike Wood, executive director of Wichita State University's Media Resources Center, who has produced two live multimedia documentaries on William Inge, as well as roughly 25 other documentaries on other playwrights.
