The veteran theatre actress will discuss her thoughts about the new production of Company as well as Christine Ebersole's performance in Grey Gardens and the recent Meryl Streep Mother Courage. Taped in Stritch's suite at the Carlyle Hotel, the Broadway favorite will also share her views on talent and jealousy.

The 30-minute program will also feature a segment about the Public Theater's Under the Radar Festival.

Elaine Stritch triumphed with her one-woman Broadway show Elaine Stritch at Liberty. That musical evening traced Stritch's career, which includes roles in Company, The Little Foxes, Bus Stop, A Delicate Balance, Sail Away and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? The show received a Tony Award for Best Special Theatrical Event as well as two Drama Desk Awards — Outstanding Solo Performance for Stritch and Outstanding Book of a Musical for Stritch and John Lahr. George C. Wolfe directed the Broadway run. The actress also received an Emmy Award for the television broadcast of At Liberty.

Hosted by New York Post theatre columnist Michael Riedel and producer Susan Haskins, "Theater Talk" airs on WNET/Thirteen at 12:30 AM ET. "Theater Talk" can also be seen on CUNY-TV (Channel 75).
