Legendary actress Karen Black’s career has gone from Robert Redford to… Mr. Media?

Just 45 Minutes From Broadway is a popular and critical success at the Edgemar Center For the Arts in Santa Monica, CA, so its run is being extended through Saturday, July 31, 2010. Two-time Golden Globe winner Karen Black joins the cast on May 21.

Black joins Mr. Media to talk about the play as well as her storied film career, which includes Five Easy Pieces, The Great Gatsby, Portnoy’s Complaint, Airport 1975, The Day of the Locust, Nashville, Family Plot and Capricorn One,

Henry Jaglom is the playwright behind Just 45 Minutes. His other plays include the award-winning Room 322: A Safe Place—his debut theatre piece first written for the Actors' Studio, later made into a film with Jack Nicholson, Tuesday Weld and Orson Welles—and Always...But Not Forever, his adaptation of his 1985 film of the same name (which premiered last year at the Edgemar). He is most known as a celebrated auteur of films that put women front and center (bucking the Hollywood trend) and that contain many scenes of people engaging in intelligent conversation (also defying Hollywood fashion). His movies as a writer and director include the current Irene in Time, Hollywood Dreams, Deja Vu, Last Summer in the Hamptons, Someone to Love, Venice/Venice, Festival in Cannes, and Eating.
