The 2023 Robert A. and Elizabeth R. Jeffe Distinguished Lecture in Urban History 

Join us for an evening with Brooklyn-born actor and director John Turturro, whose brilliant and original performances on stage and screen have delighted audiences for over four decades. From his roles in myriad Spike Lee's films starting with Do the Right Thing, to his work in Romance and Cigarettes and Fading Gigolo, which he also wrote and directed, Turturro has breathed life into a rich pageant of unforgettable New York characters. In this intimate conversation with journalist and WNYC host Alison Stewart, Turturro will discuss his wide-ranging body of work set in and about New York, and what the city means to him as an artist.  Wine reception to follow.

The Robert A. and Elizabeth R. Jeffe Distinguished Lectures in Urban History is the Museum of the City of New York’s premiere annual series, in which leading observers apply insights from disciplines including history, sociology, the arts, and architecture, examines New York City's ongoing evolution. Past speakers include authors Qian Julie Wang, Dr. Jeffrey C. Stewart, Colson Whitehead, and Dr. Jill Jonnes.
