POST-PERFORMANCE TALKBACK TO FEATURE ASSOCIATED PRESS JOURNALISTS
TIME STANDS STILL, the Tony nominated hit play at the Cort Theatre (138 West 48th Street), continues its talk back series Tuesday, December 7 following the 7 PM performance with an edition sponsored by the Associated Press.
An Associated Press team of journalists led by AP Director of Photography Santiago Lyon will discuss the rigors of international coverage of the news in the world’s hotspots during the digital era. Lyon, the moderator, and his panel of AP journalists have a wide range of experience telling the toughest stories from the toughest locales for a global audience. With more than two decades of experience in news service photography and multiple photojournalism awards for his coverage of conflicts, Lyon knows what questions to ask about ethics, relationships and journalism. For Lyon, AP’s mission as a news organization is to cover events as accurately and faithfully as possible and leave the interpretation of the content – whether the storytelling is via text, audio, video or photos – to the audience.
Each TIME STANDS STILL talk back will feature noted experts from the worlds of journalism, photojournalism, foreign affairs, and leaders in the international fight to protect journalistic freedoms. Additional talkback panelists and topics will be announced in the coming weeks.
TIME STANDS STILL stars Laura Linney, Brian d’Arcy James, Eric Bogosian, and Christina Ricci. The play is by Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies and directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan.
