"From Book to Broadway: A Conversation with Wolf Hall's Hilary Mantel and director Jeremy Herrin" begins at 8 PM. Dame Mantel is the two-time winner of the Man Booker Prize for her best-selling novels "Wolf Hall" and its sequel, "Bring Up the Bodies." She will be joined by director Herrin to discuss Wolf Hall: Parts 1 & 2, which will open on Broadway April 9.

"Honeymoon in Vegas: Conversation & Performance With the Cast & Stars." Tony Danza, Rob McClure and Brynn O'Malley will join composer Jason Robert Brown and librettist Andrew Bergman to spend the evening of March 15 at the 92nd Street Y in New York performing and chatting about their show  

"The Heidi Chronicles | A Conversation with Elisabeth Moss, Jason Biggs, Bryce Pinkham and André Bishop, moderated by Christopher Durang" will be held March 29 at 8:15 PM.

According to 92Y, "Join Moss, who embodies the intrepid feminist Heidi from the '60s to the '80s, in conversation with cast members Jason Biggs ('Orange Is the New Black') and Bryce Pinkham (A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder). Lincoln Center Theater artistic director André Bishop, a Wasserstein intimate and the producer of Playwrights Horizons' initial Off-Broadway run of The Heidi Chronicles, rounds out a panel moderated by another close friend of the late playwright, fellow Yale Drama alum Christopher Durang."
