Theater Talk: The arts are not immune to sexually abusive work environments

Kathy Hochul stands in front of a Jamestown arts center with others

The Post-Journal
Kathy Hochul may have ascended to the governor's mansion because of a sexual misconduct scandal, but will she work to root out abuse in the theater arts? Here she is (r) in front of the Reg Lenna Arts Center in Jamestown last summer.

The big story of the week was the governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, resigned and Western New Yorker Kathy Hochul becomes the governor. You may think this doesn't have a theatrical dimension, but it does.

Listen for Theater Talk, Friday morning at 6:45 and 8:45 during Morning Edition.
Even though "semi-retired," Peter Hall continues to wear many hats. He is the Sunday afternoon host on WBFO’s “sister station,” Classical 94.5 / WNED where he has produced over 1,000 radio interviews with musical artists. If you see him at a theater with a pen in his hand, he’s probably getting ready to co-host “Theater Talk” with Anthony Chase (heard Friday mornings at 6:45 and 8:45 a.m. on WBFO) or to write a review for www.buffalorising.com. He is also a member of the "Artie Awards" committee (think “Tony Awards for Buffalo theaters”).
