Tim Daly and Barry Levinson to speak in Washington
Actor Tim Daly and Barry Levinson, a writer, producer and director, will be in Washington on Sunday to speak about their work, careers and lives.
The discussion, entitled “Prescient Politics: Art Foreshadows Life,” is part of the annual summer series “Conversations On the Green” and will focus on how their films and television shows relate to current political events. It will be moderated by Jane Whitney, a former NBC News correspondent and talk show host.
The event is a benefit for local charities and encourages audiences to participate in an interactive town-hall style format. Tickets start at $45 and are available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or online at conversationsonthegreen.com.
Daly co-stars in the television series “Madam Secretary,” follows the professional and personal life of an imaginary secretary of state. Levinson’s black comedy “Wag The Dog” focuses on how a war is fabricated to distract voters from a presidential sex scandal.
Both have countless other well-known credits, including “Diner.” Levinson’s works also include “Good Morning, Vietnam,” “Rain Man,” “Avalon,” and “Bugsy.”
