Latest edition: Caricaturist Ken Fallin, plus Remembering Al Hirschfeld

Episode Details

Original tape date: January 6, 2017.

First aired: July 22, 2017.

Theater Talk welcomes artist/illustrator Ken Fallin. Fallin discusses how he went from being a young aspiring actor to one of the most sought after caricaturists working today with celebrity caricatures appearing in many periodicals including The Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker and BroadwayWorld.com. He also shows us a number of his best works, including some wonderful new drawings of the 2017 Broadway season.

Next up, we present highlights of Theater Talk's conversation with arguably the greatest caricaturist of the 20th Century, Al Hirschfeld. Back in 2001 we invited Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist Art Spiegelman to interview the legendary artist in his studio. The two masters hit it off immediately, and their fascinating conversation about the art of capturing a person's essence with line, as well as Hirschfeld's life and career, now serves as a tribute to Hirschfeld who died in 2003 at age 99.
