An event billed as an “intimate conversation” between Patti Smith and Alec Baldwin will take place at the Mayo Performing Arts Center in Morristown, Dec. 14. Tickets, priced from $69 to $89 ($175 with a limited meet and greet session), go on sale Oct. 21 at 9 a.m. (Oct. 20 for MayoPAC members and subscribers). Visit mayoarts.org.
The show will be recorded for WNYC Studios’ podcast, “Here’s the Thing,” which Baldwin hosts. WNYC Studios is the podcast division of New York public radio station WNYC.
“Here’s the Thing” has been described, in a press release, as “a podcast series of intimate and honest conversations hosted by Alec Baldwin. Baldwin talks with artists, policy makers and performers — to hear their stories, what inspires their creations, what decisions changed their careers, and what relationships influenced their work.”
Episodes in the series have featured people like former U.S. congressman Anthony Weiner, Coalition for the Homeless president Mary Brosnahan and actors Molly Ringwald and Mickey Rourke, in conversation with Baldwin. In June, actor Kevin Kline and Baldwin taped an episode at the Two River Theater in Red Bank.
