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.

Robert Klein

He’s been doing stand-up for 50 years and he’s sometimes called the comedian’s comedian. For Jay Leno, Robert Klein is a comic hero. “He was a guy who I felt was like me.  Middle class, normal parents. Watched the same TV shows I watched and that was a big change in comedy.” Jerry Seinfeld points to Klein as one of the most “intelligent, coolest comedians around.” I caught up with Klein in upstate New York where he was appearing at the Woodstock Comedy Festival. Turns out we had a lot in common. We’re both from the Bronx, our mothers used to throw dimes out of the window so we could get ice cream and we both worked as substitute teachers.

In this first episode, you’ll hear from someone who has changed the world for women and keeps on changing it. We got to spend an afternoon with Gloria Steinem shooting the breeze in her cozy Manhattan brownstone.

It’s Gloria like you’ve never heard her before. We went into her closet and checked out her black motorcycle jacket with the spikes, talked about mortality, Ms. Piggy and all the things that make Gloria Steinem laugh. Now What was produced with help from Nellie Gillis, Nick Ciavatta and Allison Bernstein.
