Sad that "Girls" recently wrapped up its final season? Well, good news, Milwaukee-based Lena Dunham fans, because while she may be briefly off television now, she's headed to a stage right here in Brew City.
This morning, The Pabst Theater announced that Dunham and fellow "Girls" writer/director/producer Jenni Konner will bring their feminist newsletter Lenny Letter live on stage for the "Lenny: America IRL Tour" at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 6.
The show will feature Dunham, as well as nine other Lenny contributors, including Chloe Caldwell, Jenny Zhang, Kaitlyn Greenidge, Morgan Murphy, Katie Crutchfield, Rachel McKibbens and Jackie Novak.
"Lenny is taking its singular mix of politics, entertainment and conversation on the road. Imagine if the beat poets weren't a bunch of ego-driven guys and there were no methamphetamines? Well, there you go!" said Lenny co-founders Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner, in a press release. "Instead of publishing our newsletter from the comfort of our office, we want to engage in a larger conversation across America, with women whose experiences may differ from ours but who share the same essential goals: freedom, self-actualization and the perfect night out.
"We will be talking, reading, playing music, showing films, asking and answering questions for, by, and of the women we meet. Our plan is to create a sense of community in every city we stop in, and to take what we learn from that community with us as we continue our work as a resource for women who love humor without snark, politics without a filter and – above all – learning about each other's truth."
Look forward to reading all the think pieces!
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
