6:30pm Discussion

FREE + Open to public. First come, first served.

Join us for an evening in celebration of the Lincoln Center Theater Review, a literary and art journal that accompanies the productions at Lincoln Center Theater. Founded in 1987 by John Guare, the magazine solicits responses to the themes and issues in the plays from visual artists and noted writers of fiction, poetry and commentary, in the belief that theater plays a part in the intellectual discourse of our time. The Review’s past contributors have included authors Nadine Gordimer, Arthur Miller, Vaclav Havel, Athol Fugard, Sigrid Nunez, Peter Brook, Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., Cynthia Ozick, Barbara Gelb, Oscar Hijuelos, Jane Smiley, Colm Toibin, Charles Johnson, James Salter, Robertson Davies, Pete Hammill, Mary Gordon, Margaret Atwood, Philip Levine, Philip Howard, Samuel Beckett, and Christopher Buckley, as well as countless playwrights, actors, and designers from LCT’s productions. The Review’s literary content is enhanced with the work of a distinguished roster of visual artists, including Kiki Smith, Gregory Crewdson, Cindy Sherman, Keith Carter, Ed Ruscha, William Kentridge, Yinka Shonibare, and David Salle.

Published three times each season, the Review has a typical print-run of 10,000 copies of each issue. As many as 250,000 copies were printed for the productions of South Pacific and War Horse in their extended runs, as well as LCT’s current Tony Award winning production of The King and I. The magazine also has a mailing list of subscribers and is distributed to libraries and national theater and book critics. It is available to audience members in in the LCT lobbies and is available, for free, online on the Theater’s website www.lct.org/explore/magazine.

Founder and Co-Executive Editor John Guare will be joined by LCT Dramaturg and Co-Executive Editor Anne Cattaneo, Editor Alexis Gargagliano, Art Director Tamar Cohen, and Picture Editor David Leopold. Moderated by Frank Hentschker. A slideshow presentation will showcase highlights from past issues and the editorial team, which has worked together for almost two decades, will discuss their challenges and successes, as well as the mission of the Review. Complimentary issues will be distributed.
