      Also "Good Person of Szechwan" at the Public Theater


What are you listening to right now?

      I don't listen to much music or books on tape. I am a regular listener to NPR, and raised my daughters on NPR. Now one is a Kroc fellow at NPR.


What’s the last great book you read?

     In midst of reading Death and Afterlife. Very thought provoking.


What’s one thing you’re a fan of that people might not expect?

      Eating good food. I'm pretty skinny and yet really love good food - and baking good desserts. I never drink coffee - which surprises a lot of people - but love tea.


What’s your favorite comfort food?

      My own banana cake or apple crisp. I love baking - the baking itself I find comforting.
