THEATER TALK focuses on the most exciting stars and other artists coming to the new Broadway season, is back for 2017 to 2018!

Broadway is always fresh and exciting, 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 Theater Talk.

Co-hosted by Michael Riedel, the influential Broadway columnist for the New York Post, and series producer Susan Haskins, Theater Talk 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 of the plays on stage highlight the in-studio interviews.

“We conceived Theater Talk as a sort of Meet the Press of Broadway,” said Riedel. “We always try to keep the conversation informal in tone,” he continued. “We like to have a little fun talking about the theatre and the goal of the show is to make people feel they are a part of a conversation with Broadway insiders.”

In addition Theater Talk’s topical critics-and-experts panels will continue, reviewing the new shows and debating the important show business issues of the day.

I’ll Have It My Way with Hattie Bryant

I'll Have It My Way with Hattie Bryant

“The medicalization of American life from birth to death is killing our souls.”

– Hattie Bryant

As much as we all want to believe we can live forever, we all know deep down that it simply can’t be true.

From this program viewers learn that there are things each of us can do to live fully, all the way to the end. Anyone who is willing to take four simple steps now, while healthy, can minimize if not avoid entirely, the pain, suffering, confusion and disagreements that can arise when end-of-life healthcare wishes are not clearly spelled out.

Americans need this information because 70% say they want to die peacefully surrounded by friends and family … while actually 70% are dying in institutions surrounded by strangers.

Few people choose to contemplate critical illness or the inevitability of death until their time comes. Because possibilities are rarely discussed, many people are unprepared or unable to make critical end-of-life decisions and spend their last days in over-medicalized and unnecessarily painful and protracted situations.

Breaking through the taboo of discussing death, Hattie Bryant shows that we have choices.
