The York Theatre Company, as part of its Winter 2013 Musicals in Mufti Series, presents A Conversation with Anne Kaufman, a one-night only special event on Monday, March 4 at 7:00 p.m. at The York Theatre Company at Saint Peter's (Entrance on East 54th Street, just east of Lexington Avenue).
Daughter of legendary George S. Kaufman -- who is considered by many to be Broadway's greatest comic dramatist and certainly the most successful playwright of the 1920s and 1930s -- Anne Kaufman will join Jim Morgan for a one-on-one conversation about the Kaufman legacy. George S. Kaufman authored two of the presentations (Hollywood Pinafore and Silk Stockings) in the current Winter 2013 Musicals in Mufti Series. Join the York Theatre Company at 7:00 p.m. on March 4th for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and celebrate an evening that will be full of history, laughter, and little gems from the Golden Age of Musical Theatre.
"I am thrilled to continue our Musical Conversations series with Anne Kaufman, who has become a great friend of mine and of York's. Anne grew up in the rarefied world of some of the greatest writers and artists of the 20th Century. For years, she has been the gatekeeper to her father's works - if you want to do any of them, she is Quality Control," says James Morgan.
