This Week at Lincoln Center: “Nantucket Sleigh Ride”

Clip: Season 2019 Episode 436 | 1m 6s

Lincoln Center Theater presents “Nantucket Sleigh Ride,” a play by John Guare and directed by Jerry Zaks. In his attempts to recover the memory of an event that happened on a ‘far away island’ decades ago, the play plunges a New York playwright-turned-venture capitalist into a surreal whirlpool that includes Roman Polanski, Walt Disney, Jorge Luis Borges, and a giant lobster.
