The late director Arthur Penn sat down with moderator Steve Lawson for a career-retrospective interview in 2002, when his production of Ivan Turgenev's Fortune's Fool had just opened on Broadway. An audio recording of that interview, conducted through the Stage Directors and Choreographers Foundation, is available on the American Theatre Wing's website, thanks to the SDCF and the Wing.

In the interview, Penn, who died at age 88 on Sept. 28, discusses his long career in theatre, film and television. He directed the original stage production (and the film and television version) of The Miracle Worker as well as Two for the Seesaw, Toys in the Attic, Wait Until Dark, Golden Boy, Sly Fox and many others, as well as many films including the groundbreaking "Bonnie and Clyde." He also talks about his methods and influences.
