The New Yorker Fest, featuring one-on-one discussions, panels, and more with the best and brightest across art and design, books, comedy, film, television, theatre, food, music, and political and current events, has been attracting A-list speakers and talent since its inception in 1999.
This year’s Fest takes place October 6–8, and theatre greats have joined the ranks of the programming on offer.
On October 6, Tony winner and six-time Oscar nominee Glenn Close (Sunset Boulevard) will chat with Michael Schulman, theatre editor of The New Yorker’s Goings on About Town. The next day, Tony winner Nathan Lane pulls up the seat next to Schulman for their own one-on-one chat about his career. Later that evening, director and Emmy-winning actor John Turturro will speak with Hilton Als, a theatre critic since 2002 and a Pulitzer Prize winner. On the final day of programming, October 8, Public Theater Artistic Director Oskar Eustis discusses theatre for public good with Rebecca Mead, a staff writer for The New Yorker since 1997.
