City Theatre presents Bryan Cranston in Conversation


Last updated 10/31/2016 at 5:16pm

Emmy and Tony Award-winning actor Bryan Cranston will appear on the City Theatre Main Stage in this CityEvent, produced in partnership with Classic Lines bookstore.

Mr. Cranston, currently on tour to promote his memoir, A Life in Parts, will be joined by City Theatre artistic director, Tracy Brigden for a conversation about art, his life, and career. The event will take place on Sunday, Nov. 20 at 4 p.m.

In his memoir, A Life in Parts, Mr. Cranston traces his zigzag journey from his chaotic childhood to mega stardom by vividly revisiting the many parts he’s played, on camera (astronaut, dentist, detective, candy bar spokesperson, President of the United States, etc.) and off (paperboy, farmhand, security guard, dating consultant, murder suspect, dock loader, son, brother, lover, husband, father).

Discussing his failures as few men do, describing his work as few actors can, Mr. Cranston has much to say about innate talent, its benefits, challenges, and proper maintenance, but ultimately A Life in Parts is about the necessity and transformative power of hard work.

Mr. Cranston won four Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Walter White in AMC’s Breaking Bad. He holds the honor of being the first actor in a cable series, and the second lead actor in the history of the Emmy Awards, to receive three consecutive wins.

In 2014 he won a Tony Award for his role as Lyndon B. Johnson in the bio-play All the Way. In film, he received an Academy Award nomination for his leading role in Trumbo. Among his numerous television and film appearances, he was nominated for a Golden Globe and three Emmys for his portrayal of Hal in FOX’s Malcolm in the Middle.

Tickets for Bryan Cranston in Conversation with Tracy Brigden are $35. Each ticket includes a copy of A Life in Parts signed by the author. Seating is general admission.
