Join us on Monday, May 7 at 7pm for a conversation between two exceptional students of American theater: Renowned journalist and former New York Times drama critic Frank Rich and Steppenwolf Artistic Director Martha Lavey.
Inspired by Steppenwolf’s season theme, “Dispatches from the Homefront,” their onstage discussion offers a unique perspective on culture and world events. Following the conversation, the audience has the opportunity to ask questions of Rich and Lavey.
Frank Rich joined New York magazine in 2011 as Writer-at-Large, following a distinguished 31-year career at The New York Times, where he was an OpEd columnist after serving as chief drama critic for 13 years. He has written about culture and politics for many major national publications and is the author of several books, including Ghost Light: a Memoir and The Greatest Story Ever Sold: The Decline and Fall of Truth from 9/11 to Katrina. He is executive producer of two forthcoming HBO projects: Veep, a new comedy series satirizing Washington, DC, starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus; and a documentary about Stephen Sondheim.
