Hear from the former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives about the challenges facing America today. Newt Gingrich was the chief architect of the Contract with America that led the Republican Party to victory in 1994. He is senior fellow at American Enterprise Institute, a founder of the Center for Health Transformation and General Chairman of American Solutions for Winning the Future. He is the author of the bestsellers, Real Change and Winning the Future and the just published, To Save America.

He also warns about the big-spending, big-government programs and lays out his radical new plan to restore the nation to what he sees are our fundamental values.

Grant Hart (of H sker D ) / The Octagon

Fri, May 28, 2010, 9:00pm

Grant Hart Returns to 92YTribeca! Hart was only 17 when he founded iconic band H sker D in 1979 with Greg Norton and Bob Mould. They became one of the most influential bands of the 1980s, a precursor to the alt rock explosion of the ’90s and their output on the legendary SST label and then Warner Brothers is a cornerstone of the current indie scene. Hart’s solo records since leaving the band in 1987 have channeled H sker D ‘s combination of punk aggression and melodic hooks into subtle, thematic renderings that build up to dramatic climaxes. Last year’s Hot Wax has been called the best of his solo work and we’re proud to welcome him back after his show here last December in support of the album.

The Poets' Theatre: The Correspondence of Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell

Mon, May 24, 2010, 8:00pm

With Kate Burton and Michael Cumpsty, moderator

In her first letter to Robert Lowell, dated May 12, 1947, Elizabeth Bishop wrote, “I was supposed to read, too, up at the YMHA Saturday evening but couldn’t make it, and I hope my absence was a help rather than a hindrance.” While the poets never shared an evening at the Poetry Center, the recently published Words in Air: The Complete Correspondence Between Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell makes clear that they shared much during their 30-year friendship. In a dramatic presentation of their letters and some of their poems, Tony-nominated actors Kate Burton and Michael Cumpsty bring that friendship to life. The evening will be introduced by Thomas Travisano, co-editor of the correspondence.
