In this episode of “Now What?” you’ll hear from actor, writer and director Carl Reiner who works in a room surrounded by his nine Emmys. We got to spend an afternoon in his Beverly Hills home where he talked about starting out on the Sid Caesar show, creating the Dick Van Dyke show and teaming up with Mel Brooks to perform a sketch at parties that became known at the “2000 Year Old Man.” Reiner was the straight man and Brooks was the guy with 42,000 children and not one of them ever came to visit. At 94, Reiner is writing two books. He told me he always wanted to be an Irish tenor and then burst into song. It’s all on “Now What?” which was produced with help from Jessi Carrier, Nick Ciavatta, Gabe Zimmer and Steve Zimmer.

In this episode of “Now What?” you’ll hear from Eve Ensler, the playwright who created “The Vagina Monologues,” a theater piece that changed the lives of thousands of women, especially her own. We got to spend an evening with Ensler in her Manhattan apartment filled with the treasures from her travels, talking about the emotional distance she has traveled, the community she founded for women in the Congo and surviving a near fatal battle with cancer. As Ensler puts it, “We go through so many lifetimes in this lifetime.”  “Now What?” was produced with help from Nick Ciavatta, Nellie Gilles, Allison Bernstein, Steve Zimmer and Gabe Zimmer.

In this third episode of “Now What?” you’ll hear from the actress who played Marion Ravenwood in “Raiders of the Lost Ark” and got to tell off Harrison Ford. “Indiana Jones. I always knew some day you’d come walking back through my door.”
 
We got to walk through Karen Allen’s door at her charming house in the Berkshires where we spent the afternoon chatting about re-invention, karma, the downside of facelifts and why Karen Allen wants acting and directing to be at the center of her life again at the age of 64. “Now What?” was produced with help from Dan Brown, Nick Ciavatta, Allison Bernstein, Steve Zimmer and Gabe Zimmer.
