Public Forum Duets: Baldwin/Brooks
Monday, Oct. 1 at 7pm
Joe's Pub at The Public
To mark the rededication of The Public Theater this fall, The Public Forum will present a special series of "Duet" conversations. Each Duet will pair an artist who has been important to the life of The Public with a leading voice from outside the world of theatre, reaffirming Joe Papp's mission to keep The Public in touch with society at large.
Alec Baldwin (Macbeth at The Public, Jack Donaghy on NBC’s 30 Rock, host of the WNYC podcast Here’s the Thing) will trade views about American politics and culture with New York Times columnist David Brooks (author of The Social Animal, On Paradise Drive, and Bobos in Paradise: The New Upper Class and How They Got There).
THE PUBLIC FORUM presents the theater of ideas. Curated by Jeremy McCarter, this series of lectures, conversations, and performances features leading voices in politics, media, and the arts. Alec Baldwin, Anne Hathaway, Cynthia Nixon, Michael Stuhlbarg, Sam Waterston, and NEA Chairman Rocco Landesman have hosted its programs, which have featured the insights of Kurt Andersen, Carl Bernstein, David Brooks, Mary Schmidt Campbell, Nathan Englander, Hendrik Hertzberg, Arianna Huffington, Bill Irwin, Tony Kushner, Jay McInerney, Suzan-Lori Parks, Francine Prose, Reihan Salam, Ben Smith, Stephen Sondheim, Emma Straub, Sam Tanenhaus, Marc Tracy, Damian Woetzel, the culture writers of New York Magazine, and young veterans of the war in Afghanistan - plus performances by Anne Hathaway, Michael Friedman, Gabriel Kahane, and Michael Cerveris, among others.
