Lyricist Sheldon Harnick recounts experiences from his 50-year career in the theater, including his partnership with the late composer Jerry Bock, which resulted in the hit musicals FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, FIORELLO! and SHE LOVES ME. In addition, Harnick performs "To Life," one of the best-known songs from FIDDLER ON THE ROOF with singer/actress Kate Baldwin. We also take a look back at Theater Talk's 2004 interview with Harnick, Bock and the late Joseph Stein, taped while the three were preparing FIDDLER's Broadway revival that year. Finally, we remember critic Donald Lyons, a frequent contributor to our program, who died in July at age 73. Taped 05/20/2011 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.
