"Theater Talk," the popular PBS show devoted to the world of the stage, will play host to actor Mark Linn-Baker this week. The program will air on Channel Thirteen WNET on Thursday, Nov. 4, at midnight (Friday morning).
Linn-Baker is currently starring in Lee Blessing's one-man show Chesapeake, playing at the Second Stage space. Chesapeake concerns a performance artist and his efforts to get back at an anti-NEA politician.
Also appearing on the program, with "Theatre Talk" hosts Michael Riedel of The New York Post and Susan Haskins, will be Jed Bernstein, president of The League of American Theaters and Producers. Bernstein will field questions about corporate influence on the quality of Broadway, the soaring price of tickets and other concerns.
The show will re-air on MetroArts Thirteen, Saturday, Nov. 13, at 10 PM (check local Cablevision listings for time and channel); and in Boston on WGBH, Nov. 12 at 12:30.
