WNYC’s Leonard Lopate hosts the conversation New Yorkers turn to each afternoon for insight into contemporary art, theater and literature, plus expert tips about the ever-important lunchtime topic: food.
Today Leonard broadcasts live from The Greene Space and will be talking about the acclaimed new Broadway musical “War Paint” with two-time Tony Award winner Christine Ebersole, Pulitzer-Prize winning playwright Doug Wright and Tony Award nominee Scott Frankel, who wrote the music.
He’ll also be joined by Tony Award winners Kelli O’Hara, Bill Irwin and Ted Sperling, artistic director of MasterVoices, about the new production of “Babes in Toyland.” Also on the show will be Anthony Bourdain, Jeremiah Tower and Lydia Tenaglia discussing the new documentary “Jeremiah Tower: The Last Magnificent.” And he’ll talk with David Bellos, author of “The Novel of the Century: The Extraordinary Adventure of Les Misérables.”
*Program note: Patti LuPone will no longer be able to join us as she has been placed on vocal rest.
