RELATED EVENT: Person Place Thing with Fiasco Theater's Noah Brody and Ben Steinfeld
Saturday, December 9, 5:30pm
In conjunction with Fiasco Theater’s TWELFTH NIGHT, OR WHAT YOU WILL directors Noah Brody and Ben Steinfeld join former New York Times Ethicist columnist Randy Cohen to discuss influences on their artistic and personal lives in an hour-long live taping of the popular interview show Person Place Thing.
Person Place Thing is an interview show based on this idea: people are particularly engaging when they speak not directly about themselves but about something they care about. Guests talk about one person, one place, and one thing that are important to them. The result? Surprising stories from great talkers. The show is produced with the JCC in Manhattan and sponsored by WAMC Northeast Public Radio in partnership with Humanities NY. Visit personplacething.org for more information.
$8 general admission. Free for members; reserve online.
