The TimesTalks conversation series continues March 7 with James Franco and Chris O'Dowd, who will co-star in the upcoming Broadway production of Of Mice and Men.
The evening at TheTimesCenter begins at 8 PM.
Directed by Anna Shapiro, Of Mice and Men will begin previews on Broadway March 19.
TimesTalks, according to press notes, have been "entertaining and inspiring audiences in New York, across the country and around the world since 1998. These compelling conversations -- live on stage, on the Web and on video -- feature New York Times journalists in conversation with today’s leaders in culture and the arts, politics and world affairs, and ideas and media."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
