HB Studio kicks off its Public Conversations series with actor-director-writer and HB Studio faculty member Austin Pendleton and writer-director Jonathan Lynn (My Cousin Vinny and the Yes, Minister and Yes, Prime Minister TV series). We’ll look at the wide-ranging and illustrious careers of these two extraordinary artists, and explore what it means to seek the truth in the theater in the “post-truth” era.

HB Public Conversations

HB’s Public Conversations series features leading theater, film, and television artists in conversation about the intentions that guide their work and their artistic vision and influences. The goal of the series is to stimulate critical dialogue about the artistic process in its social context, to educate and connect aspiring and working theater artists, and support a critically engaged theater audience. Talks are open to the public and free of charge.
