New Rep Presents: A CONVERSATION WITH FRAN LEBOWITZ
Join us for an unforgettable evening of conversation with Fran Lebowitz and WGBH’s Executive Arts Editor and host of Open Studio Jared Bowen as Lebowitz offers insights on timely issues such as gender, race, gay rights, politics, and the media as well as her own pet peeves–including celebrity culture, tourists, and strollers.
Purveyor of urban cool, witty chronicler of the “Me Decade,” and cultural satirist Fran Lebowitz remains one of the foremost advocates of the Extreme Statement. Her writing–pointed, taut, and economical–is equally forthright, irascible, and unapologetically opinionated.
Jared Bowen is WGBH’s Emmy Award-winning Executive Arts Editor. His weekly television series Open Studio with Jared Bowen takes viewers inside the creative process, offering a blend of profiles, performances, and contemporary exhibitions by artists in Greater Boston, New England, and across the country.
