"Free Speech in the Digital Age" is the title of the discussion which will address the following: "In the era of blogging and instantaneous mass media, what has 'free speech' become since talk radio first opened up the airwaves 20 years ago?"
Richards, Jerry Frankel and JAM Theatricals produce the Broadway run of Talk Radio, which follows an acid-tongued, late-night talk-show host whose program is about to be picked up for national syndication.
Filling out the characters who live in the world of talk-show host character Barry Champlain (Schreiber) are Peter Hermann ("Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" and "United 93") as producer Dan Woodruff, Stephanie March ("30 Rock" and "SVU") as producer/love interest Linda MacArthur and Michael Laurence (The Rainmaker at the Arena) as friend/foil Stu Noonan.
Sebastian Stan ("The Covenant") plays a young punk caller, along with Christine Pedi (Little Me, Forbidden Broadway), Barbara Rosenblatt (The Secret Garden), Adam Sietz (Barefoot in the Park), Marc Thompson, Cornell Womack (On Golden Pond), Christy Pusz, Oliver Vaquer and Kit Williamson, who play a number of characters on the radio show.
