Seriously. That is the question I asked my staff this morning. Am I interviewing Diane Keaton? And the answer was, “I think so.” Diane Keaton will be at the Paramount on November 6 and I wasn’t clear on exactly what all would be happening that night. I know she is giving a talk and evidently then she is going to sit down and chat with me. Does anyone out there have a question they want me to ask?
How exactly I got this job is beyond me…
I remember as a kid watching Lily Tomlin on Laugh In and never in my life did I think I would interview her one day. One of my favorite movies is Terms of Endearment and now I watch the movie and pinch myself that I got to spend the evening with Shirley MacLaine and Debra Winger. And here we go again. Diane Keaton. I’m going to be hanging with Annie Hall. Kay Corleone. Wow.
I am really looking forward to talking with Diane about her interest in restoring historic buildings. It will be great to show her our beautiful Paramount and talk to her about the restoration projects currently underway. Speaking of which, if you would like to help ongoing restoration projects, you can “Take Action” by going to our website at www.austintheatre.org .
It will also be fun to talk to Diane about Katharine Hepburn , one of the women who inspired her. Hepburn played the Paramount in 1941 – 5 years before Diane was born. Oops. Did I go too far?
