Description

Actresses Kristin Chenoweth and Idina Menzel discuss their roles in "Wicked." Then composer/lyricist Marc Shaiman and lyricist Scott Wittman, who wrote the score for "Hairspray," return to discuss a number of topics including Fred Ebb, "Bobbie Boland" and their upcoming musical collaboration with Steven Spielberg ("Catch Me If You Can"). Shaiman performs at the piano a song he composed with Bette Midler and Jerry Blatt, "Fat As I Am." Tape Date: 11/21/2003 Theater Talk is a series devoted to the world of the stage. It began on New York television in 1993 and is co-hosted by Michael Riedel (Broadway columnist for the New York Post) and series producer Susan Haskins. The program is one of the few independent productions on PBS and now airs weekly on Thirteen/WNET in New York and WGBH in Boston. Now, CUNY TV offers New York City viewers additional opportunities to catch each week's show. (Of course, Theater Talk is no stranger to CUNY TV, since the show is taped here each week before its first airing on Thirteen/WNET.) The series is produced by Theater Talk Productions, a not-for-profit corporation and is funded by contributions from private foundations and individuals, as well as The New York State Council on the Arts.
