Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL, Colorado – Tonight, as part of its adult education initiative, the B’nai Vail Congregation will present its last speaker from the fall series of the Live from NY 92nd Street Y program: the ever-popular and entertaining Steve Martin.

The program will be held from 6 to 7:15 p.m. at the Vail Chapel and will be broadcast in real time, via satellite, which will allow audience members in Vail to submit questions to Martin in New York. It will be free and open to the public, courtesy of B’nai Vail and the Vail Symposium.

The satellite broadcast series “Live from NY’s 92nd Street Y,” now in its seventh year, offers lectures, interviews and readings from nationally and internationally recognized political figures, entertainers, newsmakers and authors to community organizations across the United States and Canada. It enables subscribers in remote locations to take part in discussions with some of the world’s most influential and fascinating people at their live appearances in New York.

This Monday, for the third program, B’nai Vail will present Steve Martin, the celebrated writer, actor and performer. His film credits include “Father of the Bride,” “Parenthood” and “The Spanish Prisoner,” as well as Roxanne, L.A. Story and Bowfinger, for which he also wrote the screenplays. He has won Emmy Awards for his television writing and two Grammy Awards for comedy albums. In addition to a play, “Picasso at the Lapin Agile,” he has written a best-selling collection of comic pieces, Pure Drivel, and a best-selling novella, “Shopgirl.” His most recent book is “An Object of Beauty: A Novel.”

The program will start promptly at 6 p.m. and last until approximately 7:15 p.m., including the question-and-answer session. Attendees are encouraged to arrive by 5:45 p.m. to get seated, and during the lecture may submit questions or comments in writing for B’nai Vail staff to transmit via e-mail to New York. At the last program, a question from Vail was the first one addressed by the speakers.

No reservations are necessary. If you need further information, please call Jeanne Whitney at B’nai Vail at 970-477-2992.
