News   "Theater Talk" Welcomes Stritch, Simon and Day Jan. 4
 
The late British playwright/performer Noel Coward will be the subject of the Jan. 4 broadcast of "Theater Talk," the PBS chat show that offers interviews with top theatre practitioners.

Actress Elaine Stritch, critic John Simon and author Barry Day will all be on hand to share their thoughts about the playwright and composer.

Day's new tome, "The Letters of Noel Coward," examines Coward's life through letters Coward wrote to friends and loved ones.

Actress Stritch, who is currently reprising her Tony-winning Elaine Stritch at Liberty at the Café Carlyle, starred in Coward's 1961 musical Sail Away. After her performance in that production, Stritch and Coward became life-long friends. In fact, in his diary, Coward wrote this about her: "She really is an astonishingly fine actress."

Hosted by New York Post theatre columnist Michael Riedel and producer Susan Haskins, "Theater Talk" airs in the metropolitan New York City area on WNET/Thirteen at 12:30 AM.
