The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Talk Radio for Fine Minds welcomes two legends of stage and screen, Renee Taylor and Joseph Bologna as well as one of the most influential men in the New York theatre, Theodore “Ted” Chapin.  
Early in their 47-year marriage, Renee Taylor and Joe Bologna had a huge fight — a fight that ultimately led to a highly autobiographical, two-person show.
“I told him to get out,” Taylor recently said in an interview. “So he started packing. But then I started packing, too. He asked me why and I said, ‘If you ever leave me, I’m going with you.’”
Forty-seven years later Taylor and Bologna have established themselves as one of the major power marriages in entertainment. They both have distinguished careers as actors. Bologna has starred in movies such as “My Favorite Year and is probably best known for TV’s “Married With Children.” Taylor has appeared in “The Producers”  and “Alfie.” She is probably best known as Fran Drescher’s mother, Sylvia Fine, on “The Nanny.” 
They have written and directed for the theater. Their first play together, “Lovers and Other Strangers,” was a Broadway hit that became a film, earning them an Oscar nomination. Their relationship is always at the heart of their creativity.
THEODORE S. CHAPIN is President and Executive Director of Rodgers & Hammerstein: An Imagem Company. He is past-Chairman of the Board of Trustees for the American Theatre Wing. He served as a Tony Awards nominator for two seasons, and is currently a member of the Tony Administration Committee.
