Hugh Jackman (Episode #512)

KQED Life: Sun, Jan 27, 2013 -- 5:30 PM

Forget those premium Broadway ticket prices! We've got Hugh Jackman, Broadway's biggest star. We spend a half-hour with the versatile and popular entertainer. Jackman talks about his love for Broadway, his sellout show, Hugh Jackman -- Back on Broadway and its meaning for him now and in the future. He also discusses his upbringing in a single-parent home in Australia and his beginnings in musical theater.

Sir Tim Rice (Episode #525)

KQED Life: Sun, Jan 20, 2013 -- 5:30 PM

Our favorite knight, the lyricist and librettist Sir Tim Rice joins us to discuss his celebrated shows Jesus Christ Superstar and Evita, both of which are currently being revived on Broadway. Rice also talks about his new show, From Here to Eternity, a musical adaptation of James Jones' World War II novel, and shares a few dry observations about Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber's new reality TV show in Britain, on which the public will pick "Jesus" for an upcoming UK stadium tour of Superstar (not to be confused with the critically celebrated version directed by Des McAnuff, playing in NYC now).

Hytner, Bean & Corden:One Man, Two Guvnors (Episode #531)

KQED Life: Sun, Jan 13, 2013 -- 5:30 PM

Our guests are playwright Richard Bean, Tony-nominated director Nicholas Hytner and Tony-nominated actor James Corden - the writer, director and star respectively of the new hit comedy, One Man, Two Guvnors. Based on the Eighteenth Century Goldoni farce, The Servant of Two Masters, Bean's freewheeling adaptation is set in 1960's Brighton. In an interview taped just two days after the British import's triumphant New York opening, the trio discusses the work that made the show a success and share the enthusiasm that comes with being out-of-town artists who have scored on Broadway.

KQED Life: Sun, Jan 6, 2013 -- 5:30 PM

Our guests are Rick Elice and Roger Rees, the writer and co-director of the Tony-nominated play, Peter and the Starcatcher, Elice's enchanting prequel to the children's classic Peter Pan. The show is nominated for nine Tony Awards (including Best Play) and is now on Broadway at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre.
