The event is "I Love Paris in the 50's," part of the theatre's "Summer Tuesdays" series. Joining Stone will be writers Art Buchwald, Peter Matthiessen and George Plimpton, and editor Ben Bradlee, all of whom lived in Paris during the decade in question. Shana Alexander will moderate as the panelists reminisce about James Baldwin, Jean Paul Sartre, Edith Piaf, and the founding of the Paris Review.
