Ted’s Talks

Imagine being privy to a candid conversation between key players at the heart of New York City’s performing arts scene – and then getting to ask some questions of your own. That’s the notion behind Ted’s Talks, and the opportunity is rare indeed – we’ve chosen guests who don’t usually “do” public talks, but who were drawn, as we hope you will be, to the notion of witty and intelligent repartee with one of the most knowledgeable artistic interpreters working today: our own Artistic Director, Ted Sperling.

Hosted from 4-6 pm in the home of Susan Baker and Michael Lynch, this quartet of conversations is limited to 30 guests each. Spots must be purchased as a series, but are transferable should you be unable to attend. Subscribers also receive password-protected archival video access to each conversation.
