A panel of architects and educators, including playwright Oren Safdie's renowned architect father Moshe, will take part in a Private Jokes, Public Places post-show discussion at the Theater at the Center for Architecture, Dec. 15.

Architect-educator Alexander Garvin and Metropolis magazine editor-in-chief Susan S. Szenasy will also participate in the event.

The new comedy about architecture made its world premiere in Los Angeles and played Off-Off-Broadway last season at La MaMa ETC. The show began Oct. 24 and opened Nov. 5 at the unique and apropos new space, Theater at the Center for Architecture, located at 536 LaGuardia Place, in Greenwich Village.

In Private Jokes, Public Places, Safdie takes a glimpse inside the modern world of architecture, as a young Korean-American student presents her thesis for a public swimming pool to an all-male, all white jury of famous architects.

Original Rent star Anthony Rapp heads a cast that includes original L.A. stars M.J. Kang and Geoffrey Wade (Translations) with Sebastian Roche (Salome). Maria Mileaf directs the work, presented Off-Broadway by Steven Chaikelson, Brannon Wiles, Ergo Entertainment and Avram C. Freedberg.

Safdie has also penned the film "You Can Thank Me Later," and the plays Jews & Jesus, Fiddler Sub-Terrain, Hyper-Allergenic, Broken Places, Laughing Dogs and La Compagnie.
