Twice a month, Terry Teachout of The Wall Street Journal; Elisabeth Vincentelli, contributor to The New York Times and The New Yorker; and Peter Marks of The Washington Post get together to talk about what’s going on in the American theatre.
For the 40th (!) episode, the critics interview a very special guest: Tracy Letts, Pulitzer-winning playwright of August: Osage County and Tony-winning actor for Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?. Letts discusses his newest play, Linda Vista, currently running on Broadway through Nov. 10. He also tells the story of his first acting gig, shares his thoughts on vulnerability in art, and sheds some light into how he balances his many dualities: screen and stage, playwright and actor, Chicagoan in New York.
