Tony Award winner Julie Taymor and Tony nominee Elliot Goldenthal participate in an interview moderated by Disney Theatrical Group producer and president Thomas Schumacher for Music-Theatre Group May 17 at the Dimenna Center for Classical Music. 

The interview, set to begin at 7:30 PM, will feature the artists discussing their careers and their work at Music-Theatre Group. Porgy and Bess Tony nominee Diane Paulus and Sleep No More producer Randy Weiner will be the next pair of artists interviewed by Schumacher June 7. 

"The legacy of MT-G is inextricably linked with the artists who have worked with us over the years," said MT-G producing director Diane Wondisford in a previous statement. "We couldn't be prouder of our association with Julie, Elliot, Diane and Randy, and these talks will very much feel like a homecoming."
