We welcome celebrated young playwright Amy Herzog to discuss her new play, "Belleville." Herzog talks about the lengthy process it took her to create this work, as well as her other recent stage successes, "After the Revolution" and "4000 Miles." Next we head to Manhattan's Hell's Kitchen to interview the legendary restaurateur Joe Allen. Allen opened his eponymous restaurant, Joe Allen, in 1965 on a drug-infested block of the Theater District and by doing so, helped pioneer the highly-successful Restaurant Row, now one of the principle go-to spots for visitors to Broadway. Allen reflects on how Broadway has changed while he's been on the scene and shares some of the wisdom he has gained after half a century in his business, including his insight about seating, "Those who care don't count, and those who count don't care." Taped: 3-1-13 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.
