From 11 AM-12:30 PM, the discussion at the Elebash Recital Hall will feature Jessica Lange, Natasha Richardson and Christian Slater. Jeffery Eric Jenkins, editor of “The Best Plays Theater Yearbook,” will be the moderator of the seminar; the panel is expected to discuss the various aspects of staging and performing the works of Williams. Lange and Slater currently co-star in Williams' The Glass Menagerie; Richardson will soon be seen in the revival of Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire. Created by the late American Theatre Wing chairman Isabelle Stevenson, the series, now in its 31st year, presents major theatre personalities discussing their craft. Future seminars are scheduled for April 14 (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), May 12 and June 10.
