Randy Cohen, Barry Edelstein, Richard Thomas, et al. Set for February 28 Public Forum
The event coincides with The Public's production of Timon of Athens, Shakespeare's timely tragedy about a man who loses and gains a fortune, which is directed by Edelstein, and stars Thomas in the title role. The first part of the Public Forum will feature Thomas and Edelstein discussing Shakespeare's views on money in a conversation moderated by Emmy-winning writer Randy Cohen.
The second part of the evening will be a wide-ranging conversation about the role of money in our lives. Participants will include David Patrick Columbia, Katy Lederer, and Bethany McLean, with the conversation moderated by Jeremy McCarter.
