Fabulous talk format!

I had the pleasure of seeing a number of episodes of the talk format Hallo New York along with some short films at a recent presentation at the Liliom Theatre in Augsburg. The show is about people who pursue their passion and talent in New York City, the toughest place to make it. If I can make it there...as the song goes. The host, Marianne Hettinger, is one of those artists who seems to be living her dream, as shown in the fun introduction of the show. She speaks both English and German like a native and even interviews some guests in German. An innovative and interesing format. I loved the intimate setting of the host's Manhattan brownstone apartment, and most of all, her intelligent, warm and open interview style that make her a wonderful conversationalist. I loved her choice of guests. First up I saw a conversation with Ann Hampton Callaway, a tremendous artist, who even sang some of her answers. What an inspiring woman. It's so rare to have someone praise their upbringing and actually say their strength is to love and sound 100 per cent honest. Ms. Hettinger is able to make her guests feel comfortable and open up in many ways. Chris Orbach, son of Gerry Orbach was another fabulous guest.The great Ute Lemper was wonderfully relaxed and open as well. I wish one can see this series of interviews on a wider platform soon!
