PERSON, PLACE, THING LIVE! WITH RANDY COHEN AND JUDY COLLINS
Legendary singer and activist Judy Collins joins Randy Cohen for the live, on-stage version of his public radio series Person Place Thing at 92YTribeca. Collins joins Cohen on Jan 17 to discuss one person, one place and one thing about which she feels passionately. Cohen believes people often reveal themselves most intimately when they speak not directly about themselves but about something important to them, which is why Person, Place Thing goes a step further than the traditional one-on-one interview.
Person Place Thing Live! at 92YTribeca will be recorded for later broadcast and accompanied by live music from accordion player Matt Dallow with an audience Q&A to follow. The event will be "drawn live" by Guggenheim Fellow Flash Rosenberg.
7pm, tickets from $24
***JUST ADDED***Sat Jan 19, 9pm, tickets from $10
