The Stamford Center for the Arts has created a new interview series, titled "The Green Room," in which theatre and entertainment artists will be quizzed about their art and careers. The program, which will begin in January 2000 at the Connecticut center, will feature such talents as actor-playwright-director Alan Arkin, actress-playwright-screenwriter Elaine May and actress Valerie Harper.
Stamford's 1999-2000 season will include four "Green Room" programs, all in the Rich Forum, with dates to be announced. Each show will be taped and then aired on Connecticut Public Television. Julian Schlossberg will be host. Call (203) 325-4466 for information.
