In-Person Event: An Evening with Fran Lebowitz

In a cultural landscape filled with endless pundits and talking heads, author and journalist, Fran Lebowitz stands out as one of our most insightful social commentators.   

Her essays and interviews offer her acerbic views on current events and the media – as well as pet peeves including tourists, baggage-claim areas, after-shave lotion, adults who roller skate, children who speak French, or anyone who is unduly tan.

We are honored and delighted to announce an in-person evening and book-signing with the incomparable Fran Lebowitz at The Capitol Theater on Saturday, January 29th at 8 PM!

We'll be selling copies of The Fran Lebowitz Reader in the lobby. We hope to see you there!

Please note all patrons must provide proof of COVID vaccination or a negative test to attend this show, and tickets are required. Find more information and get your ticket by clicking here.

About The Fran Lebowitz Reader


In the vein of Lebowitz’s acclaimed Netflix limited series, Pretend It’s a CityThe Fran Lebowitz Reader brings together two of the famed author’s bestsellers, Metropolitan Life and Social Studies.

In “elegant, finely honed prose” (The Washington Post Book World), Lebowitz limns the vicissitudes of contemporary urban life—its fads, trends, crazes, morals, and fashions. By turns ironic, facetious, deadpan, sarcastic, wry, wisecracking, and waggish, Fran Lebowitz is always wickedly entertaining.

About Fran Lebowitz


In a cultural landscape filled with endless pundits and talking heads, author and journalist, Fran Lebowitz stands out as one of our most insightful social commentators.   

Her essays and interviews offer her acerbic views on current events and the media – as well as pet peeves including tourists, baggage-claim areas, after-shave lotion, adults who roller skate, children who speak French, or anyone who is unduly tan. The New York Times Book Review calls Lebowitz an “important humorist in the classic tradition.” Purveyor of urban cool, Lebowitz is a cultural satirist whom many call the heir to Dorothy Parker.
