Star Wars: Episode VIII — The Last Jedi

Faces of Stone continues with our discussion of The Last Jedi. We’re getting awfully close to the premiere of The Rise of Skywalker, the final two Faces of Stone episodes in this series — and the end of the nine-film, three-trilogy Skywalker saga. With Marc-Anthony Macon, Amanda Sisk, and Noah Diamond.

Anticipating Episode IX

We’re almost there! But before we get there, we pause for the final theme episode in our Star Wars series, in which we discuss the anticipation of The Rise of Skywalker; and our hopes, fears, and expectations for the final chapter of a story we’ve lived with all our lives. With Marc-Anthony Macon, Amanda Sisk, and Noah Diamond.

Star Wars: Episode IX — The Rise of Skywalker

And here we are! The Faces of Stone panelists will have seen Episode IX upon its release, two days before this Faces of Stone episode, and now here they are to conclude their Star Wars series with the final chapter — making Faces of Stone one of the first-ever examinations of the entire saga. With Marc-Anthony Macon, Amanda Sisk, and Noah Diamond.

Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope

Nine episodes into our Star Wars series, we’ve finally arrived at the beginning — or at least, what was long considered the beginning, the 1977 film that started all of this. Fun fact: This movie used to be called Star Wars! With Marc-Anthony Macon, Amanda Sisk, and Noah Diamond.

One Day in Manhattan Walking Tour

This adventure will take us to locations real, imaginary, and long-gone. Partly, it'll be a preview of the themes of 400 Years in Manhattan: the centuries of relentless change, the nature of life on a tiny island, and the experience of working as a professional New York storyteller. But we'll venture beyond the scope of 400 Years, too, and examine the relics of other dreams. Friends of the Marx Brothers will not be disappointed.

Rain date: July 6.

On the evening of Wednesday, June 26, I’ll be speaking about the Marx Brothers at the legendary Algonquin Hotel, part of a series of events marking the centennial of the Algonquin Round Table.

The evening begins at 6:00 with cocktails at the Round Table, followed by dinner. At 7:30, dessert will be served and enjoyed during my Round Table talk on the Marx Brothers’ Broadway period and the comedy of the Jazz Age.

No ticket is required for attendance, just a dinner reservation — dinner, Algonquin Round Table, June 26, 6:00 pm. You can make reservations here: https://www.opentable.com/the-round-table-at-the-algonquin-hotel?rid=26551

On Wednesdays throughout the summer, there will be similar events with Round Table talks on other subjects. We’ll link to the official page on the Algonquin site as soon as it’s up.
