THEATER TALK goes on location to the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center to present a vivid, colorful portrait of Sir Noël Coward (1899–1973), the legendary playwright (Private Lives), screenwriter (Brief Encounter), performer and songwriter (“I’ll See You Again”), with two Coward “experts” as guides.

Against the lavish multi-media exhibition, Star Quality: The World of Noël Coward – now on display at the Library through August 18, 2012 – Barry Day, who has written extensively about the late writer and performer for the past 20 years, and Geoffrey Johnson, Coward’s American representative from 1963-71, reminisce about the multi-faceted artist known as “The Master” amid a variety of film clips, photographs, and recordings from his remarkable career. Also dropping by, with a captivating contribution to the exhibition, is Lincoln Center Theater Artistic Director André Bishop.
