It's life imitating art on PBS May 31. After the protagonist of The Goat or Who Is Sylvia? confesses his unusual affair with his best friend, the host of a Charlie Rose-esque chat show, on the stage of the Golden Theatre, Edward Albee, Bill Pullman and Mercedes Ruehl will discuss the play itself with the actual Rose. The program will focus on the audience reactions to The Goat, what Albee means for audiences to gain from the controversial play and other artistic issues. The Goat, both a hilarious and heart-breaking look at the disintegration of a loving marriage after the husband's admits to a torrid affair, is nominated for two Tony Awards — for Best Play and for Best Actress in a Play for Ruehl.
"Charlie Rose" airs on PBS at 11PM ET on New York's WNET-13. Scheduled arts segments are occasionally pre-empted in favor of breaking news interviews. Check local listings for times and channels.
