She’s Making Media: Eve Ensler
Thu, Feb 16, 2012, 8:30 pm - 11:59 pm
Free admission (all visitors, all hours)
For this second season, the Paley Center and WNET are launching a special initiative called “She’s Making Media,” a new series of programs that puts a slightly different lens on the subject of women’s role in media. At the Paley Center will celebrate women who are making media with a purpose. Hosted by Pat Mitchell, president and CEO of The Paley Center for Media, each episode of the new six-part series concentrates on a high-profile woman who has used media in new and innovative ways.
In each unique and compelling half-hour episode, the guest’s life-story is intertwined with numerous examples of her work, taking advantage of the Paley Center’s collection. Mitchell also speaks with each guest about the enormous impact of the media on women.
A unique, signature element of At The Paley Center is a short performance, reading, or monologue selected and performed by the guest: for example, Marlo Thomas reads an excerpt from her autobiography about her marriage to Phil Donahue; Jane Fonda reads an excerpt from her book about her decision to end her marriage to Ted Turner; Eve Ensler performs a short monologue; and Glenn Close sings an a cappella rendition of a lullaby she coauthored for her recent film, Albert Nobbs. This very personal coda to the show is selected by each guest.
