Steppenwolf Theatre artistic director Martha Lavey will be interviewed by Rick Kogan, long of the Chicago Tribune, for his Conversations with Extraordinary People series. The discussion will take place before a live audience at the city of Chicago's own, rather eccentric banquet room--an exact replica of Maxim's of Paris, situated in a residential tower on Goethe Street and called Maxim's: The Nancy Goldberg International Center. The results will then be broadcast over channel 25.
Live discussion: Wed 9/24, 6:30 PM, with a reception starting at 6 PM, Maxim's: The Nancy Goldberg International Center, 24 E. Goethe, 312-744-1423 for reservations, $25. Broadcast: Sun 4 PM, Mon 3 PM, Tue-Thu 1 PM, starting about a week after the event and continuing, loosely, over the following month.
