Pencil This In: John Adams Discusses His Music, Audra McDonald in Concert and Zombie Joe's Theater Festival
REDCAT presents Paul Chan’s Waiting for Godot in New Orleans: An Illustrated Lecture tonight at 8:30 pm. The artist/activist gives a stirring live presentation about the community art experiment he spearheaded in New Orleans in collaboration with the Classical Theatre of Harlem and the public arts group Creative Time. “Chan and his colleagues staged five site-specific performances of Waiting for Godot in the Katrina-devastated neighborhoods of Gentilly and Lower Ninth Ward, playing to large crowds of local residents for whom the classic Beckett-penned lines rang with fierce immediacy.” Tickets: $9, $7 students and $5 for CalArts students, staff and faculty.
Photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders and journalist Elvis Mitchell continue their exploration of what it means to be African-American today with the third installment of their series The Black List. The screening includes interviews with John Legend, Whoopi Goldberg, Lee Daniels, Debra Lee, and Beverly Johnson. After the screening, there will be a panel discussion on the project, which includes HBO documentaries, a book and a gallery exhibition of photographs (on display now at the Paley). Tickets to the 7 pm screening and discussion: $25; tickets to include the 6 pm pre-event reception with special guests: $50.
