Pick: Editors' Picks
About: This fledgling Rockland County arts center has taken a page from James Lipton's popular TV celebrity interview show with their Conversations at Riverspace series. WQXR radio host Elliott Forrest (who is also co-artistic director of Riverspace) does live Q&As with Hollywood A-listers. Last month, Forrest grilled Alec Baldwin; previous guests have included comedian Lewis Black, playwright Edward Albee, and actors Bill Irwin and Kathleen Turner. And on October 18, director Jonathan Demme takes over the host's chair to discuss the art of acting with none other than Ms. Meryl Streep.
