Broadway is booming, much of its success fueled by out-of-town audiences who join with New Yorkers in their collective anticipation of each new season's plays and musicals. Tapping into, and even influencing, this enthusiasm is this remarkable public television series. Co-hosted by Michael Riedel, the influential Broadway columnist for the New York Post, and series producer Susan Haskins, it is a unique forum for the New York theater scene, featuring conversations with the actors, directors, playwrights and other artists whose work makes live theater so exciting. Video excerpts highlight the in-depth interviews with these outspoken personalities about their shows. In addition to featuring each season's current crop of plays and musicals, the series also showcases authors and historians discussing theater legends and masterpieces, as well as New York's top critics and reporters on the latest productions (with insightful, blistering or hilarious comments virtually guaranteed).
