Connecticut's Eugene O'Neill Theater Center has announced that actor/writer/director Josh Radnor will participate in a discussion of his time at the O'Neill's National Theater Institute. The event will take place at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts' Bruno Walter Auditorium on June 19.

Radnor will join O'Neill alumnus and faculty member Donna Dinovelli and moderator Rachel Jett, both of whom will also share memories about how the National Theater Institute has shaped their careers. The event is free and open to the public. It is the second of a three-part series hosted in conjunction with Launchpad of the American Theater: The O'Neill Since 1964, a multimedia exhibition on display in the Vincent Astor Gallery through September 16.

Launchpad of the American Theater: The O'Neill Since 1964 charts the journey of American theater at the O'Neill and explores the creative development of its playwrights, composers, students, puppeteers, and performers.

Founded in 1964, Connecticut's Eugene O'Neill Theater supports the development of new artists and works for theater through a four-week retreat for top theater professionals, culminating in public, staged readings of early-draft plays.
