Composer William Finn (Falsettoland, A New Brain) will be the second guest of a new series of discussions between artists and theatregoers designed by Lincoln Center Theatre. The "Platform" discussions, as they're called, are modeled after a similar program at the Royal National Theatre in London.
The series continues on July 22, when Finn will participate in a talk with Ira Weitzman, associate producer of A New Brain, the new Finn musical currently playing at Lincoln Center's Mitzi E. Newhouse Theatre.
The Platform discussions are open to everyone and free of charge, but seating is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. The Crowley talk attracted a large audience, so arrive early. The series is made possible through a grant form the Charles E. Culpeper Foundation.
