This Is New York: John Benjamin Hickey in Conversation with George C. Wolfe


From the 1993 Broadway production of Angels in America to the 2020 film adaptation of Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, director George C. Wolfe has created works of art that elevate the collective conversation around race and sexuality in America. At our next installation of This Is New York, actor John Benjamin Hickey talks with Wolfe about his extraordinary body of work, and how New York City feeds his creative soul.

New York has been the muse of some of the world's greatest writers, actors, directors, comedians, chefs, politicians, activists, and so many more. Symphony Space honors the gorgeous complexity of the city and the mystique that surrounds it, in this new conversation series exploring what is that thing that inspires such prolific creativity.

This event is available to view with the Symphony Space 20/21 Season Pass.
