In tribute to the late KITTY CARLISLE HART, Theater Talk presents its 2002 interview with her and ANNE KAUFMAN SCHNEIDER in which they discussed the legacy of the legendary creative team, Kaufman and Hart.
George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart were two of the most successful playwrights of the Twentieth Century. Their hit collaborations, including the classic comedies: YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU, THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER and ONCE IN A LIFETIME, continue to be produced constantly, wherever people love theater.
Kitty Carlisle Hart was a well-known and beloved actress/singer ("A Night at The Opera") and television personality ("To Tell the Truth"), as well as a champion of the arts. She was married to Moss Hart from 1946 until his death in 1961. She also was Chairman and then, Chairman Emeritas of The New York State Council of The Arts.
Anne Kaufman Schneider is an eminent arts consultant, philanthropist and the daughter of George S. Kaufman. Together they lovingly oversaw and protected Kaufman and Hart's theatrical legacy.
Theater Talk is a series devoted to the world of the stage. It began on New York television in 1993 and is co-hosted by Michael Riedel (Broadway columnist for the New York Post) and series producer Susan Haskins. The program is one of the few independent productions on PBS and now airs weekly on Thirteen/WNET in New York and WGBH in Boston. Now, CUNY TV offers New York City viewers additional opportunities to catch each week's show. (Of course, Theater Talk is no stranger to CUNY TV, since the show is taped here each week before its first airing on Thirteen/WNET.) The series is produced by Theater Talk Productions, a not-for-profit corporation and is funded by contributions from private foundations and individuals, as well as The New York State Council on the Arts.
