This Is New York with John Benjamin Hickey: In conversation with Mark Harris


Over a six-decade career as a comedian, actor, producer, and director, Mike Nichols created some of the most iconic voices of the 20th century. His extraordinary life is brilliantly captured by biographer Mark Harris, and in our new series, This Is New York, actor John Benjamin Hickey and Harris discuss the life of a young man who fled Nazi-occupied Germany with his parents in the 1930s and began a lifelong love affair with New York City. Drop in on a fascinating conversation about one of the greatest stage and screen directors of our time.

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.

Purchase a signed copy of Mike Nichols, A Life and more by Mark Harris from our friends at Strand.

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