Held at the Drama League Center in Tribeca, the evening features a conversation with the songwriting team, whose musical Rocky is currently playing at the Winter Garden Theatre.
Here's how the event is billed: "Although long-time songwriting teams have become a rarity, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty have proved the exception. In 1988, they burst onto the New York theater scene with the comic musical Lucky Stiff, and their partnership in words and music has flourished ever since. Their body of award-winning work includes the Broadway musical Ragtime, Seussical, the long-running hit Once on This Island and the Twentieth Century Fox feature film 'Anastasia,' for which they received two Academy Award nominations and two Golden Globe nominations."
The Drama League Theater Center is located at 32 Avenue of the Americas. Visit Dramaleague.org for more information.
