A weekly highbrow variety show which will gather together a handful of the finest minds in literature, criticism, journalism, music, theater, film, sports, television, art, and beyond for a series of short talks. A poet and a novelist discussing X; a string quartet performing Y; someone unexpected doing some unexpected thing.
Our last variety show of 2015 will be a McNally Jackson Live with Annie Baker and Lynne Tillman. Inspired by our guests' shared interest in the strange and spiritual powers of inanimate objects, the evening will feature excerpted readings from Annie Baker's JOHN and Lynne Tillman's HAUNTED HOUSES, as well as readings of Nabokov, Von Kleist, and Rilke. Moderated by Emily Stokes, of T Magazine.
