Co-hosted by Michael Riedel and Susan Haskins, CUNY TV’s “Theater Talk” will host a conversation with leading casting directors James Calleri, Tara Rubin, and Bernie Telsey Saturday, Feb. 23, at 8:30 p.m. As Riedel puts it, casting directors are “gatekeepers” to getting roles for theater, film, and television. This group will discuss how they work with both directors and performers, in addition to swapping success stories from their careers. Most importantly, however, the hosts promise these master casting directors will reveal the number one secret to becoming a working actor. For this coveted piece of advice all aspiring actors will have to tune in.
The show will also air on CUNY TV Sunday, Feb. 24, at 12:30 p.m. and Monday, Feb. 25 at 7:30 a.m., and again at 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
