Event Details

Acclaimed actor Alec Baldwin has been keeping busy playing Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, but his storied career spans decades and genres. Baldwin earned seven consecutive Screen Actors Guild Awards as Best Actor in a Comedy Series for his role of Jack Donaghy on 30 Rock, and has received two Emmys, and Tony and Oscar nominations over the course of his career. Baldwin also penned the deeply personal book A Promise to Ourselves: A Journey Through Fatherhood and Divorce, and hosts WNYC's Here's the Thing.  On the LIVE stage, he is joined by New York Times critic-at-large Wesley Morris for a wide-ranging discussion  on popular and political culture.
