CFR Editor Leonard Jacobs to Appear on ‘Oleanna’ Talkback Panel on B’way, Oct. 1


OleannaExciting news! I have just been booked to participate in the talkback following the 8pm performance tomorrow night, Oct. 1, of David Mamet’s Oleanna on Broadway.

The post-show back-and-forth is called Take a Side: The Oleanna Talk-Back Series, and takes place following each preview performance (now through Oct. 10) at the Golden Theatre (252 W. 45th St.).

Tomorrow night, I’ll appear with Mitchell Moss, a New York University Professor of Urban Policy and Planning, and the roundtable will be moderated by Cynthia Tornquist, President of Tornquist Productions LLC and a former correspondent for CNN.

Directed by Tony Award winner Doug Hughes (Doubt), Oleanna is a gripping account of a power struggle between a male university professor (played by Bill Pullman) and one of his female students (played by Julia Stiles). Currently in previews, the production opens Sun., Oct. 11, 6:30pm.

Tickets — $116.50 to $76.50 — are available for purchase via, by calling (212) 239-6200, or by visiting the Golden Theatre. Oleanna‘s performance schedule is Tues., 7pm, Wed.-Sat., 8pm, matinees Wed. and Sat., 2pm, and Sun., 3pm. For more information, visit
