Directors Thomas Kail, Moisés Kaufman, Bartlett Sher, Leigh Silverman, and Kate Whoriskey will be featured in the American Theatre Wing's newest episode of its "Working in the Theater" series, titled "Fluidity & Change: Directors 2009," to be aired on CUNY Television beginning Sunday, May 31, at 5:00 pm.

The program is moderated by Variety reporter Gordon Cox, and features the panelists discussing topics such as how they work with, and interpret, the author's work; the relationship between directors and designers; managing change as the work evolves; why they feel actors should be more involved in the process; the different approach they take when working with classics as opposed to original works; how they work with casting directors and then work with the various actors and acting techniques; their desire to be a support system for each other; and whether they feel directing can be taught.

There will be additional airings Friday, June 5 at 9:00 am, 2:00 pm and 7:30 pm, Saturday, June 6 at 11:00 am, and Sunday, June 7 at 5:00 pm. The episode will also be available for viewing and for download as a podcast beginning Wednesday, June 3.
