Fritz Weaver of The Voysey Inheritance on Radio Program

Tony Award-winner Fritz Weaver, who stars in Atlantic Theater Company's acclaimed production of David Mamet's adaptation of The Voysey Inheritance, joins "Broadway's Biggest Hits" radio host Bud Wilkinson this weekend to discuss the new staging of the classic 1905 Harley Granville Barker play, and recalls playing fiction's legendary consulting detective, Sherlock Holmes, in the musical Baker Street in 1965.

According to press notes, "The special installment of "Broadway's Biggest Hits" will feature songs from musicals that have their origins in literature, highlighting Weaver's Broadway turn in Baker Street. Weaver also reminisces about visiting the White House when starring in the 1964 play The White House, working with Ray Bolger in the 1962 staging of All American, and discusses how The Voysey Inheritance's topical theme of corporate corruption resonates over one hundred years after the play was first staged."
