The Alex Theatre is the latest venue for
Live Talks Los Angeles, a series of great live conversations between leaders who have earned fame and fortune. Past programs have filled the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica, Gensler HQ in downtown Los Angeles, the Crawford Family Forum in Pasadena and the recital hall of the Colburn School.
Live Talks will bring Burt Bacharach to the Alex May 14 to discuss his career and his memoir, Anyone Who Had a Heart: My Life and Music. Bacharach has written more than seventy Top 40 hits and won three Academy Awards, eight Grammys (including one for lifetime achievement), and an Emmy, was nominated for a Tony, and received the prestigious Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. Talking with Bacharach will be Mitch Albom, whose books have collectively sold over 33 million copies worldwide; and have been made into Emmy Award-winning and critically-acclaimed television movies. He is author of the mega bestseller, Tuesdays with Morrie. More details about both speakers here.
This is just the first of three Live Talks at the Alex. Basketball Hall of Famer Phil Jackson, arguably the greatest coach in the history of the NBA, will appear June 12, in conversation with NBA veteran John Salley. NY Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman will appear June 27, in conversation with Entertainment Weekly’s Geoff Boucher.
The many Live Talks I’ve attended have always been excellent and entertaining, with plenty of food for thought, high-level insights and insider gossip. Welcome Live Talks to Glendale – tickets are available from Glendale Arts for Live Talks locally at the Alex. Check out all upcoming events in the latest Live Talks Los Angeles enewsletter.
