I've been looking for the two interviews with Stephen Sondheim and Bernadette Peters for what seems forever. Is it possible to find these two interviews anywhere online?
I know there's a few clips of Bernadettes interview and some of Liz Callaway performing a few songs from Sondheims interview.
I know that you can watch almost all other interviews on "that place", but I can't find find these two anywhere.

Would love to see them if anyone knows where to find them.

I didn't even know the Sondheim one existed! I remember a year ago searching for the peters one with no luck sadly. If you find either let me know! That'll be a great find!

Lincoln Center's Performing Arts Library has them in their TOFT Archive.

This sounds so awesome! I'm going to try to get this! @B-way4Life-do they have some Actors Studio episodes or they have that specific one?

Actors Studio webpage says Sondheim was season 1, ep 3 and Peters was season 6, ep 4. At least we know that much.

As obnoxious as I find James Lipton (the man who gave us Mirrors, a ridiculous behind the scenes Broadway novel and subsequent TV movie, several flop musicals, and a number of failed soap operas), the Sondheim episode was pretty good. Jim Walton and Liz Callaway (as mentioned) do the song performances. I've never been able to find it online--I have it on VHS from back when A&E used to air the show, but I know that's pretty useless...

I stumbled upon these on YouTube. I thought I'd revive this thread.

Here's Sondheim's: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywB_R3Lczzw

I like your imperturbable perspicacity.

Hi all!

Can anyone help me find these, or does anyone have these? The links here are dead, and I would just love to see these episodes. :)

Thanks!

I may actually have a proper copy of the Peters episode direct from the Actors Studio drama school.

The only issue is that its on VHS. 

They would give out the episodes as gifts to graduating students, three years of episodes on videotape.

Since its debut in 1994, INSIDE THE ACTORS STUDIO has aired on the Bravo network.  It has never, at any time, aired on A&E.

Though Bravo is now known for its countless reality show franchises, back when the network began in the early 1990s it was solely known for its cultural programming, hence INSIDE THE ACTORS STUDIO.  They also aired regularly all the (at the time) filmed Broadway productions, from the Lansbury/Hearn SWEENEY TODD, Robards/Dewhurst YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU to the original Broadway production of THE HOUSE OF BLUE LEAVES (with Christine Baranski, Swoosie Kurtz, etc.).  

Also, originally INSIDE THE ACTORS STUDIO aired with no commercials so they were longer.  Now they're edited down to 44-45 minutes - 15 minutes worth of commercials to make the hour mark.  On rare occasion, there are 2-part episodes.

Wow! That's interesting to hear. They definitely stopped doing that by the time I attended ASDS. (2010)

Yes! I believe they started giving DVD's out in 2004 but guess they scrapped the whole process since you mentioned they stopped. What track did you study? What years did you attend?
