Eliot Spitzer In The Public Eye

imageThe New York Times on Wednesday published an article on former Governor of the State of New York Eliot Spitzer and his careful return to public life, making reference to his many appearances on television, lecturing at City College of New York, attending notable restaurants and charity galas holding hands with his wife and writing online. He is “essentially back,” declared The Times.

Including back at the 92nd Street Y, (he was last here in November of 2009) on May 2 when Spitzer will be interviewed by Jeff Greenfield, the CBS political analyst.

Greenfield told The Times the difference between Spitzer’s troubles and those of Governor John Edwards, for instance, is that Spitzer “took swift responsibility and did penance.”

This was legitimately a private failure, Mr. Greenfield said. A serious one, that made him no longer able to be governor. If he were trying to talk about moral rearmament, it would be appropriate to say, ‘Hold it.’ But he is talking about how to prevent another financial meltdown, and he’s in a pretty interesting position to talk about that.

Join both men on May 2 at the 92Y for discussion on these issues and more. Tickets are available here, and can also be purchased in a subscription for the series: In the News with Jeff Greenfield.

As well, if you have any questions for Mr. Spitzer, leave them here in the comments so we can consider them during the Q&A. If your question is used on stage, (we’re known to do just that!) you will receive two free tickets to any upcoming lecture of your choice, pending availability.

Jordan Roth On Theater, Broadway Talks, The Donkey Show And More

imageThe American Theater Wing interviewed Jordan Roth, President of New York’s Jujamcyn Theaters, and host of Broadway Talks at 92Y. The interview was recorded shortly after the first Broadway Talks event with Liev Schreiber, and begins with a discussion on Roth’s experience with that event; being in front of such a large audience, how the audience (you guys!) responded, and how he became involved with the series.

Jordan Roth interviewed by The American Theater Wing.

The almost hour long interview continued with forthright discussion from Roth on his interest in theater as a child, his time at Princeton where being a performer became “less and less satisfying,” coming out as gay man during this time, and more frank and personal stories about his life and career.

About 13 minutes in, Roth explained how he fell into producing, describing falling in love with concept of a friends show being developed, A Midsummer Night’s Dream “but told through disco hits” in a “work shop type setting on the Lower East Side.”

It was this show, The Donkey Show, that became his first production. 

“It was disco but because of its setting it was garage disco aesthetic, as opposed to 54 disco aesthetic.”

“I’m not sure Ive heard the term garage disco.”

“Well just um, sweatsuit jumpsuit versus gold glitter.”

You can download the interview in mp3 format on The American Theater Wing site.

Jordan Roth and Broadway Talks continues next on May 24 with Sean Hayes. This event will be held at 92YTribeca. Nathan Lane in Conversation with Jordan Roth follows that on June 27 back uptown at 92Y.

As seen in the photo above, Noisemakers utilized Twitter during the Q&A, taking questions from other Twitter users and projecting those onto a screen on stage.
