THE HOUSE OF SPEAKEASY IS A HOME FOR CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF A LITERARY KIND: A PLACE WHERE AUTHORS AND THEIR AUDIENCES COME TOGETHER IN INNOVATIVE AND SUSTAINING WAYS. MORE
House of SpeakEasy returns to Joe’s Pub with a bang, not a whimper, this September – because whatever the newscasters say, This Is Not the End.
Four writers; four stories; forsooth! what larks await. Discover not one, not two, but Thirteen Ways of Looking with award-winning novelist Colum McCann. Explore the art of life with biographer and historian Ruth Scurr. Hit the high notes with Queen of the Night author Alexander Chee. And rediscover the meaning of binge-watching with Sense8 and Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski. Shake off back-to-school election-season apocalypse blues with another Seriously Entertaining fix of literary cabaret.
ALL 2016 SHOWS HELD AT JOE’S PUB at The Public Theater at 425 Lafayette St, NYC 10003. If a show is sold out, check our website again in a few days, as extra tickets sometimes become available closer to show date. Join our mailing list for further information.
