Talk to Paulie
“Talk To Paulie” is an interview show featuring the great artists, intellectuals, thinkers and doers that give our city and our borough much of its inimitable vitality. Each half-hour episode typically focuses on a single guest, often a theatre artist, visual artist, author, intellectual, activist, outlaw, and/or ingrate — representing the whole spectrum of intense beings that make New York what it is. Interviews will often be linked to an upcoming event related to the work of the guest: say, the publication of a book, the release of an album, the opening of a film, or a theatre or art show. “Talk To Paulie” plugs its audience into cool cultural happenings that are under, over or on the radar.
Produced and engineered by Bart Warshaw.

The Snow Falls in the Winter
Martha Graham Dance Company
“The Snow Falls in the Winter has always been a favorite, yet rarely performed, piece of mine. I am fascinated by Ionesco who called theater “embarrassing”— he liked his theater dry and straight up. I see this exchange with the MGDC as almost a quickening. The process of sharing it with the Company, a group of dancers trained in an entirely different tradition, from a different family tree in the forest of dance, excites me as a meeting of the minds (bodies in this case), and I relish the thoughts of this exchange.” – Annie-B Parson
