The Culture Gabfest is coming live to Los Angeles—and now there’s an extra special reason to come out to the Oct. 8 show. Natasha Lyonne—Nicky Nichols from Orange Is the New Black—will be appearing, taking questions from, and chatting with Stephen Metcalf, Dana Stevens, and Julia Turner.
Before joining the cast of characters at Litchfield Penitentiary—where she plays a recovering drug addict and a confidante of Taylor Schilling’s Piper Chapman—Lyonne was known for her work in Everyone Says I Love You, the American Pie movies, and Slums of Beverly Hills.
John August and Craig Mazin, the screenwriters behind the great podcast Scriptnotes, will also be on hand for the show.
Tickets are still available. The live culture gabfest will be recorded at the Belasco Theater on Wednesday, Oct. 8. Doors open at 6:30. Slate Plus members will receive 30 percent off ticket purchases.
