Due to a malfunction of the fire suppression system in the Potter Rose Performance Hall at the Wyly Theatre, our originally scheduled date & venue for #hearhere’s Fran Lebowitz engagement has moved to Tuesday, August 1, 2017 at the Winspear Opera House. This performance was previously sold out, but now that it’s moved to a larger venue, great seats are available! Already bought tickets? Not to worry, your tickets have been moved to comparable seats in the new venue and we will be mailing out your physical tickets in the next few days! If you pre-purchased, you will also receive a replacement parking pass for Lexus Red Parking on the new date.

“Fran Lebowitz’s trademark is the sneer; she disapproves of virtually everything except sleep, cigarette smoking, and good furniture. Her essays and topical interviews on subjects ranging from the difficulty of finding an acceptable apartment to the art of freeloading at weekend houses have come to be regarded as classics of literary humor and social observation.”

— The Paris Review

Purveyor of urban cool, witty chronicler of the ”me decade” and the cultural satirist whom many call the heir to Dorothy Parker, Fran Lebowitz remains one of the foremost advocates of the Extreme Statement. She offers insights on timely issues such as gender, race, gay rights, and the media as well as her own pet peeves – including celebrity culture, tourists and strollers.

Her writing — pointed, taut and economical — is equally forthright, irascible, and unapologetically opinionated. Fran Lebowitz’s first two classic books of essays, Metropolitan Life and Social Studies, have been collected in the Fran Lebowitz Reader. She is also the author of the children’s book, Mr. Chas and Lisa Sue Meet the Pandas. A documentary film about Fran Lebowitz, Public Speaking, directed by Martin Scorsese, premiered on HBO in November 2010.
