Here is another "Mental Sorbet" that we could use to momentarily forget about those things that leave a bad taste in our mouths.
In Steve Allen's Meeting of Minds Revival Play Debating Torture and S&M Gary Cole continues leading the debate as Steve Allen, France Nuyen will dominate as the Empress Tz'u-hsi, Joe Mantegna makes the case against the evils of torture as Cesare Beccaria, Ernie Hudson illuminates the depths of despair and the power of knowledge as Frederick Douglass, and Richard Gilliland incarnates the wit and defiance of the rebel de Sade. Opening Minds Productions, in association with Meadowlane Enterprises, Inc., and Bill Allen, is reviving Steve Allen's award-winning, timeless PBS series Meeting of Minds as live theater. Allen's series, comprised of 24 hours of programming, originally aired from 1977 to 1981. Staged readings are scheduled once a month at the Steve Allen Theater in Hollywood as part of launching the effort to perform these works nationally.
