Two Minutes with…Seth Christenfeld

At the York Theatre in NYC, Seth Christenfeld is the literary coordinator; his job is to review script submissions and offer creative input when it comes to the off-Broadway house’s productions. He’s also got an incredibly vast well of knowledge when it comes to the performing arts. You want the year that Mary Beth Peil did The King and I and in which theatre it played? Seth is your guy. Today, I’m pleased to announce the new Puccini’s Chronicles column TWO MINUTES, in which we ask some rapid-fire questions to some of the arts scene’s best and brightest.
