Heather Headley and Adam Pascal will be the guests on the May 26 edition of "Theater Talk," the PBS show devoted to the world of the stage, hosted by Michael Riedel of The New York Post and Susan Haskins.
[Please note: "Theater Talk," usually seen on Thursday nights at midnight (i.e., early Friday morning), will be seen on Friday night at midnight this week. It will return to its regular schedule next week.]
The show leads off with Headley and Pascal, two of the stars of the new Disney musical, Aida. Headley won a Drama Desk Award for her portrayal of the title character, and is up for a Tony.
Next, author and New York Times writer Ralph Blumenthal will discuss his new book, "Stork Club: American's Most Famous Nightspot and the Lost World of Cafe Society." Manhattan's Stork Club was the club of choice for celebrities in the 40s and 50s. Walter Winchell routinely conducted his business there every night.
The show airs May 26 at midnight, and will re-air on MetroArts Thirteen, Saturday, at 10 PM (check local Cablevision listings for time and channel); and Friday at 12:30 AM in Boston on WGBH. (Check local listings.) For additional information on Theater Talk, visit their Website at www.theatertalk.playbill.com .
