Guest host Cynthia Nixon introduces two tales of avarice and pretension among the well-heeled and well-born.
Danny Burstein and Sarah Paulson talk about starring in Roundabout Theatre Company’s new off-Broadway production of “Talley’s Folly.” At the end of World War II, a Jewish immigrant who has spent his life keeping others at a distance, returns to the small town where he first met Sally Talley, a nurse with deep misgivings about the country’s future. The two try to figure out their place in the world and with each other. “Talley’s Folly” is playing at the Laura Pels Theatre.
Jan Maxwell, who stars as Phyllis Rogers Stone, and Danny Burstein, who stars as Buddy Plummer in the new production of "Follies," talk about their roles and the production. When former members of the "Weismann Follies" reunite on the eve of their theater's demolition, two couples remember their past and face the harsher realities of the present. The score features some of Stephen Sondheim's best-known songs. "Follies" is playing at the Marquis Theatre through January 22.
