Admission and $10 off at our bookstore

October 4, 2019 Friday, 7:00 pm

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.

Paul Auster and other to-be-named writers and artists will consider Peter Brook as one of the century’s greatest and most innovative storytellers and speak about their experience of his work on stage, on screen, or on the page. Peter Brook will then join them in discussion.
