NY Big Voice Video Diary #11

A rare and wonderful visit to the artist studio of the late Al Hirschfeld, the brilliant caricaturist for New York theatre for most of the 20th Century. His widow, Louise, takes us on the tour. Jim, who has idolized Al his entire life, is overcome with emotion, as you will see.

This is probably the most emotional video I've seen in a long time. Beautiful record!

So wonderful to see you get a tour of the artist's studio. Such a treat -- and your heartfelt reaction was so touching. Hirschfeld truly was one of the giants. I'd love to see the text of what AH wrote you, and your comments on how he influenced you. But -- hey, you got a show to do!

Thanks for sharing this -- and my thanks to Mark Evanier for steering me to it.
