Manhattan Theatre Club's "Writers in Performance" series will continue on April 9 at 7:30 PM with a forum featuring former New York Times drama critic Frank Rich. Rich will read from and discuss his recently-published memoir, "Ghost Light." "Ghost Light" is described as "the memoir of a lonely boy who found refuge in the theatre, a triumphant story of how the aspirations of a stage struck young kid became lifeline, a beacon of security for a child finding his way in a tumultuous world." Rich— a great deal less insecure these days one guesses—will read at at City Center, 131 W. 55th Street. Tickets are $15. For more information, call (212) 399-3030.
