Episode Details

Original tape date: November 12, 2001.

In November 2001, Theater Talk invited Pulitzer-Prize winning cartoonist, Art Spiegelman ("Maus") to interview the legendary theater caricaturist Al Hirschfeld at his studio in New York City. The two masters hit it off immediately, and their conversation about the art of capturing a person's essence with line, as well as Hirschfeld's life and career, was fascinating and now serves as an inspiring tribute to Hirschfeld who died in 2003.
