Austin Pendleton gives us a master class in directing and talks about his new production of Chekhov’s Three Sisters, now playing at Classic Stage Company in New York. Pendleton discusses how he works with actors (in this production, the company includes Maggie Gyllenhaal, Josh Hamilton, and Peter Sarsgaard) to effectively interpret this dramatic masterpiece. Pendleton also reminisces about working as a young actor with directors including Jerome Robbins, Mike Nichols, and Otto Preminger, and he explains how they inspired him to move beyond acting.

    I very much enjoyed seeing Austin Pendleton on your show. Pass this on to him. I recognized him IMMEDIATELY as Col Moodus from Mike Nichol\’s Catch 22, a movie he was very funny in, and in which just about every character was funnier than the last, and perhaps the best, the illustrious Buck Henry (Hollywood\’s bespectacled funnyman), who was a scream in it, but also wrote the screenplay. And who can forget Bob Newhart? But tell Mr. Pendleton I enjoyed seeing him.
