BRYAN CRANSTON with SHERMAN ALEXIE at Benaroya Hall
Presented by SEATTLE ARTS & LECTURES as part of the SHERMAN ALEXIE LOVES Series. Sherman Alexie, along with Seattle Arts & Lectures, presents this evening with award-winning actor Bryan Cranston, on the occasion of his much-praised memoir, A Life in Parts (Simon & Schuster). Most known for his recent portrayal of lead character Walter White in AMC’s acclaimed Breaking Bad series, for which he received four consecutive Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actor, he has written quite a book. "[A] substantial memoir from one of Hollywood’s most introspective stars...anyone interested in acting will devour Cranston’s savvy advice about honing one’s craft and building one’s career."--Booklist. “This splendid, moving, heartbreaking memoir is doubly triumphant. It regales and entertains while at the same time providing inspiration and practical wisdom. A truly gifted storyteller, Cranston captures the reader's imagination and emotions from beginning to end.”—Doris Kearns Goodwin. With Sherman Alexie on hand, moderating a conversation and the q&a as part of this, as he’s done with other actors who also write (Jesse Eisenberg, Mary-Louise Parker), this should all be great fun. Tickets ($45-$70), include a copy of A Life in Parts, and are available, along with more information at www.lectures.org. (There is also a special student - with ID - price). Benaroya Hall is at 200 University Street.
