Now that’s it’s been publicly announced on the air on PBS tonight on Theatertalk, I can say congratulations to Susan Haskins for winning (her first) Emmy! And she graciously and generously thanked me for introducing her to “the brilliant and impossible Michael Riedel” and she called me a “Public Access Legend.” And the term has stuck. Which has very kind of her.
I now wear a hat that a kind friend gave me for my birthday that says “Puhlic Access Legend”.
There’s almost no woman who against all odds has done so much for American Theater. She’s been doing it for 25 Years.
Especially when there’s so little coverage of theater anymore in NYC. She’s doing what Ed Sullivan used to do. Congratulations, Susan!
