Live Read: My Dinner with Andre


Live Read: My Dinner with Andre

With Nick Kroll & John Mulaney

PLEASE NOTE: Tickets are no longer available for this event.

Please take your seats… The Film Independent Live Read series – in which casts of actors perform live, one-night only stage readings of classic film scripts – is back. What better way to return than with a film that is consumed with the power of thought and language: My Dinner with Andre. Though said in another context, the thoughts of theatre critic Kenneth Tynan perfectly sum up the power of the script, which “[has] the ability to make words perform for you; skip, leap and gyrate.” This two-character piece features fictionalized versions of writers Wallace Shawn and Andre Gregory, aptly named Wally and Andre. The two cajole, contradict and converse about life, art, death and ultimately, what satisfies. One of the most influential films of all time, it has inspired a list of creators that includes the minds behind Community, Slacker and, almost certainly, Curb Your Enthusiasm. Playing the roles of Wally and Andre will be literal stars of stage and screen Nick Kroll and John Mulaney. Who’s playing whom? Grab a ticket and find out!

Arts Circle Members receive access to the Founder’s Room one hour prior to showtime. Includes complimentary beverages.
