The In Conversation series consists of illuminating symposium-style discussions among leading scholars, artists, and other public figures that foster cross-disciplinary exploration of big questions and concepts in McCarter’s plays. The 2011 – 2012 In Conversation Series is made possible by generous support from the Lewis Center for the Arts, and is produced in partnership with the Princeton Art Museum’s year-long project Memory and the Work of Art.
