HB Artist Spotlight: Catch-22 with Christopher Abbott & Austin Pendleton

Venture with us into the satirical world of CATCH-22 with HB artists Bob Balaban, Christopher Abbott, and Austin Pendleton.

HB Studio welcomes alumnus Christopher Abbott and his mentor, HB faculty member Austin Pendleton, for a roundtable discussion exploring their respective work in the CATCH-22 films. Christopher Abbott starred in Hulu’s CATCH-22 mini-series (2019), produced by George Clooney, and Austin Pendleton starred in the original CATCH-22 film (1970), directed by Mike Nichols.

We are thrilled to announce renowned actor, director, producer, and author Bob Balaban as moderator for this roundtable discussion! Balaban starred in the original CATCH-22 film (1970) alongside Pendleton and is a fellow alumnus of HB Studio.

This is a FREE public event. Suggested donations are encouraged and appreciated.

We recommend all attendees watch both CATCH-22 films in advance of the discussion. They will not be live-streamed during the event, but can be viewed on public streaming services such as Hulu and Amazon Prime.

A private Q&A session with the artists, HB Season Sponsors, and Green Room Circle members will follow the public presentation.
