RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Fran Lebowitz is bringing her sarcastic wit to the Ridgefield Playhouse on Feb. 22 as part of its Entertaining Conversation Series.
The New York City author, journalist and cultural satirist offers insights on timely issues such as gender, race, gay rights and the media, as well as her own pet peeves, including celebrity culture, tourists and strollers.
Lebowitz’s topics range from politics, Andy Warhol and the glory days of the Studio 54 crowd, to literature and her opinions on everything. She has been called the new Dorothy Parker.
"Fran Lebowitz’s trademark is the sneer; she disapproves of virtually everything except sleep, cigarette smoking, and good furniture," the Paris Review said. "Her essays and topical interviews on subjects ranging from the difficulty of finding an acceptable apartment to the art of freeloading at weekend houses have come to be regarded as classics of literary humor and social observation."
The program starts at 7:30 p.m. with an on-stage interview and is followed by a 60-minute audience question-and-answer session. Tickets are $47.50 and can be purchased here.
The Playhouse is located at 80 East Ridge Road in Ridgefield.
