On Monday May 3, 2021 at 11:00 AM ( PST ), and at 1:00 PM ( CST ), following talented and experienced fellow guests Film Director, Editor and Actor Dave Edison ( who has worked on television and screen projects from sci-fi series to Christmas specials ) and Actress and Dancer Trish McCall ( who has worked around the country in the theatre and on television with such legends as theatre Director / Producer Woodie King and the late, great Jerry Orbach of 'Law And Order' in New York ), Darryl Maximilian Robinson joined veteran entertainment journalist and host Ron Brewington to discuss public theatre performance, politics, systemic racism, The Covid-19 Pandemic and The Oscars during his third appearance on 'The Actor's Choice'.
