TWELFTH NIGHT's Stephen Fry Set for THEATER TALK, Beg. Today
THEATER TALK welcomes actor, writer, producer and beloved British television personality Stephen Fry, now appearing on Broadway as Malvolio in the Shakespeare Globe's production of Twelfth Night, beginning today, December 27 (2014) at 1 AM (early Saturday morning) on Thirteen/PBS, followed by repeats on CUNY TV* on Saturday 12/28 at 8:30 PM, on Sunday 12/29 at 12:30 PM, and on Monday 12/30 at 7:30 AM, 1:30 PM, and 7:30 PM. THEATER TALK is co-hosted by Michael Riedel of the New York Post and producer Susan Haskins.
Although this is Fry's Broadway acting debut, he has in fact worked on Broadway before as the librettist of the 1986 musical hit, Me And My Girl. On THEATER TALK, Fry shares his observations on how Broadway has changed in the past 28 years, as well as his expertise on many topics relevant to Shakespeare and the wildly successful Twelfth Night revival, which also stars Mark Rylance.
THEATER TALK is jointly produced by the not-for-profits Theater Talk Productions and CUNY TV. The program is taped in the Himan Brown TV and Radio Studios at The City University of New York (CUNY) TV in Manhattan, and is distributed to 100+ participating public television stations nationwide. THEATER TALK is made possible in part by The New York State Council on the Arts, The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, The TDF/TAP Plus Program, The CUNY TV Foundation and The Friends of THEATER TALK.
