Theater Talk CUNY TV
Thursday, February 17, 2000

Hosts: Michael Riedel, Susan Haskins
Guests: Arthur Gelb, Barbara Gelb

Theater Talk presents a special program devoted to the great playwright, Eugene O'Neill. In 1962, Arthur Gelb (former Managing Editor of The New York Times), and his wife, writer Barbara Gelb, wrote a landmark biography of O'Neill that was hailed as the definitive depiction and evaluation of the legendary genius. In this interview, they explain why they completely rewrote this work for a new edition, the first volume of which, O'Neill: Life with Monte Cristo, was published by Applause Books in May of 2000.
