New York: The Future of Food at the Public Theater

This is a discussion on the Future of Food.  The idea of doing this arises from issues raised in Grasses of a Thousand Colors, a play by Wallace Shawn presented by the Theater for a New Audience at the Public Theater.  The director is Shawn’s long-time collaborator and dinner partner, André Gregory.   Wallace Shawn stars in the production, which also features actors Julie Hagerty Emily Cass McDonnell, and Jennifer Tilly.

The discussion takes place after the Sunday matinee at about 5:30 p.m.  I will be speaking with Elissa Altman, author of the critically-acclaimed memoir, Poor Man’s Feast: A Love Story of Comfort, Desire, and the Art of Simple Cooking (Chronicle 2013).
