Why Internet stalk your favorite artists when you can get the scoop straight from the source? Returning stateside after a sold-out run last year, this Australian salon invites notable female writers and performers to air their dirty laundry in the form of personal letters crafted just for the occasion. The evening’s lineup includes folk-rock songstress Martha Wainwright, Emmy-winning actor Edie Falco and New Yorker senior editor Amelia Lester; they’ll showcase their epistolary talent by penning “a letter to the night I’d rather forget.” Post-intermission they’ll continue the full disclosure by sharing correspondence from their personal lives, ranging from love and breakup letters to the odd piece of hate mail.
