A Forum Rare For Colbert
Nov 1: Comedian and Montclair resident Stephen Colbert has made truthiness his career, bringing us the nightly “news” as the satirically right-wing host of Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report. But for one night only at the Count Basie Theatre, he takes a break from his political persona for a candid interview on stage with Two River Theater Company artistic director Aaron Posner, a friend since their days at Northwestern University.
“The creation of Stephen Colbert as a character is arguably one of the most brilliant, fascinating, and best examples of extended improvisation in the history of theatrical performances,” says Posner. See if Colbert, with his perfectly coiffed hair and ever-arched sarcastic eyebrow, can stay out of character for the evening while discussing how he created his alter ego. Proceeds from the show benefit Two River’s artistic and education programs. 7:30 pm; $35–$99.50. 99 Monmouth St, Red Bank (732-842-9000; countbasietheatre.org).
