The program will premiere on CUNY TV Nov. 2 at 5 PM ET with additional broadcasts scheduled for Nov. 7 at 9 AM, 2 PM and 7:30 PM; and Nov. 8 at 11 AM.
The broadcast will feature interviews with Daniel Jenkins, Lisa Kron and David Pittu, who have appeared onstage and have written for the stage. The three artists, according to press notes, will "talk about how they balance these dual roles; what they learn about being playwrights from their acting; where they get inspiration for their plays; how audiences help them enhance their performance as both actors and writers; whether or not it's more satisfying to act in a play they wrote; and their relationship with directors when they're performing the role of both playwright and actor."
Variety's Gordon Cox will moderate the discussion.
Beginning Nov. 5, "Actors Words, Writers Voice" will be available as streaming audio and podcast by visiting www.americantheatrewing.org.
