You’re invited to a sneak preview of select scenes from a new theatrical adaptation of Philip Roth’s Sabbath’s Theater. The National Book Award-winning novel tells the story of a notoriously indecent puppeteer grappling with lust, loss and meaning. Emmy-winner John Turturro and New Yorker staff writer Ariel Levy adapted the novel for the stage, and Turturro will portray Mickey Sabbath alongside actor Jason Kravits (The Practice). There will be a post-performance chat moderated by Scott Simon, host of NPR’s Weekend Edition, and, because this is a birthday party, your ticket will include pre-performance hors d’oeuvres, champagne, cake and live music.
