This fall, we are thrilled to join several NYC cultural institutions in a citywide recognition of Peter Brook’s work and his collaborations with Marie-Hélène Estienne for Peter Brook\NY.

Actor Robert Langdon Lloyd will join Estienne in considering Peter Brook as one of the century’s greatest and most innovative storytellers. Peter Brook will then join them in a discussion on his approach and methods.

Moderated by Jeffrey Horowitz. Co-presented with Theatre for a New Audience.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Paul Auster has canceled his appearance. The event will proceed with Brook, Lloyd, and Horowitz.
