The 92NY Unterberg Poetry Center’s 84th season will continue February 6 at 7:30 PM with a celebration of the works of the Tony-winning Broadway playwright John Guare.
The evening of words and music in celebration of the famed playwright will feature Meryl Streep, Ben Stiller, Ariana DeBose, Paul Dano, Suzan-Lori Parks, Linda Lavin, Dylan Baker, Kenneth Lonergan, Edie Falco, Zoe Kazan, Elizabeth Marvel, Stephen Adly Guirgis, Bill Camp, Camryn Manheim, Becky Ann Baker, Corey Hawkins, Linda Emond, and Ato Blankson-Wood.
Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tony Kushner, who is producing the event at the Manhattan venue, says, “So enormous is the esteem in which I hold the Great Guare and his monumentally important body of work. Like Williams, he figured out a way for Americans to do a kind of stage poetry. There are astonishingly beautiful things in his plays.”
Guare's theatrical works include Two Gentlemen of Verona, Lydie Breeze, Four Baboons Adoring the Sun, A Free Man of Color, Six Degrees of Separation, Sweet Smell of Success, The House of Blue Leaves, and Landscape of the Body.
