The first moment I hear that Christos Xirogiannis is here in Los Angeles, I was pretty sure that good theatre is coming back in town. But how and when and with whom? As a journalist for years, I had to dig deeper to find out. It is not as easy to get a word from the 'silent power of Greek theatre' as they use to refer him. He never gives interviews, and he doesn't like publicity around his name. 'My work talk for me' is his motto and he is probably right. After a lot of phone calls and insisting he has a coffee with me at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills.
