Gavin Witt will talk about the process of renovating a major resident theater, preparing a world premiere with a Nobel and Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist, and how our presence that night will contribute to this new play.

The discussion will be followed by the 8pm preview performance of Jazz, a world-premiere play based on the book by Toni Morrison.
