Major Players

Sam Waterston, Kelli O’Hara, and Michael McKean talk about starring in the Public Theater’s production of "King Lear." Then we’ll look at the recent restoration of George Melies’s pioneering, hand-painted, 109-year-old film “A Trip To The Moon.” Charlotte Gainsbourg discusses her role in the new Lars von Trier film “Melancholia.” And Please Explain is all about how various New York City landmarks—like the Major Deegan expressway, the Goethals bridge, and Stuyvesant town—got their names.
