On To The Next Show, Always…But First

April 26, 2011

I try not to spend time in the past. Even if the past was just yesterday.

But before I move on and start talking about the next ON THE SCENE episode, I want to thank people who watched and noticed so much about this past weekend’s show with Christine Ebersole and Bojana Coklyat.

It means a great deal to me when I hear what I did today…emails from viewers and comments from my colleagues who appreciated the revealing, personal nature of both interviews and wanted to ask me more about what I thought of each artist.

What I noticed is how Christine Ebersole can intellectualize her art, and then turn around and be pure emotion on stage. That’s a quality surprisingly few actors possess when you start to closely watch their work and listen to what they have to say about their performances.  I had wanted to interview her since she starred in “Grey Gardens” on Broadway, but the truth is, I never asked her for an interview until last month.

Bojana is a story that I needed to tell again. Two years ago when I first interviewed her for ON THE SCENE I felt that there  was territory left uncovered. And since then her life has taken such unexpected twists and turns that it was so important for me to revisit her. She doesn’t hide her heart, her humor or her drive and that makes her compelling. And real.

Now, on to the next show and we have some great interviews in store…
