Fans of the New York roundtable show, “Theater Talk,” will be interested in a sneak peak at a few of the upcoming broadcasts airing on WGBH’s Channel 44.
The weekly series, which has aired on New York City’s PBS affiliate Thirteen/WNET since 1996, is hosted by Michael Riedel, Broadway columnist for The New York Post, and executive producer Susan Haskins.
Each half-hour show features in-depth interviews with prominent guests working in all aspects of the theater. After bouncing around on ‘GBH’s schedule, the always smart and insightful show is currently seen on Sunday afternoons.
Recent shows have featured everyone from Harvey Firestein (talking about a host of topics including his current hit, “Hairspray”) to Richard Greenberg, author of the terrific baseball ensemble comedy “Take Me Out,” composer Maury Yeston and Stephen Adly Guirgis, author of the new off-Broadway hit, “Our Lady of 121st Street.”
Here’s what’s coming in the next few weeks.
