“A lot of people lost their sanity because of art,” says Mikhail Baryshnikov, sounding decidedly sane during a phone interview. “Art is divine madness. You have to be totally committed. A lot of people are blessed by talent, but being an artist is a disease, like any other psychological disorder. We’re all a bit crazy, trying to discover some secrets of art.”. Art and madness are the subjects of “Letter to a Man,” Baryshnikov’s solo performance piece inspired by the travails of Vaslav Nijinsky, the iconic Russian dancer who helped bring modernism to ballet in the early decades of the 20th century. Directed by the celebrated theatrical innovator Robert Wilson, the production explores the devastating six-week period in 1919 that saw the onset of Nijinsky’s schizophrenia, which the dancer chronicled in extraordinary diary entries.

Rocca says he “really learned to write” when he worked on “Wishbone” in Dallas, a children’s show on PBS about a Jack Russell terrier whose daydreams followed story lines of classic literature. “I was always good at parodies, but making Aldous Huxley’s ‘Time and the Machine’ accessible to 6- to 11-year-olds requires great effort,” he says. “A plot needs to keep moving forward. Shouldn’t all narrative do that?”. His unlikely career in food television began eight years ago, when a friendly acquaintance with Food Network Vice President Bob Tuchman led to 10 appearances as a guest judge on “Iron Chef America,” seated next to Jeffrey Steingarten. Where Rocca the rookie might have been chewed up and spat out like so much gristly Secret Ingredient, he and the famous food writer got along like pals. “I was convinced there should be an animated version of him and me as Sherman and Peabody — a nod to the early ’60s ‘Bullwinkle’ cartoon characters,” he says. Unlike his fellow panelists, Rocca ate all of every dish placed before him. And he knew how to deliver a good line.
