Podcast: On 'Keith Price's Curtain Call,' Get to Know this Year's Kleban Prize Winners
Since I began this podcast 2 years ago, The Kleban Prize has always been something that I love to cover, because it was the very first major event that I began my podcast experience as a theater journalist.
In addition to talking with this year's winners, Christian Duhamel, Alan Schmuckler, and Amanda Yesnowitz, I also got a chance to chat with a few of the foundation's Board of Directors, Tony Award winning lyricist/director, Richard Maltby, Jr., Tony Award winning composer/lyricist, Maury Yeston, and Tony Award nominated librettist, John Weidman.
The Kleban Foundation, created by Edward Kleban, by an instruction in his will, awards its prestigious endowment to promising musical theater librettist and lyricist. The Kleban Board of Directors sets the amount of the prize annually but in recent years, the prize has been in the amount of $100,000 in each category payable in two annual installments. That is not too shabby. Please take your time and enjoy my conversations with all of these amazing people.
