The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts (The Wallis) and Writers Bloc, Los Angeles present “Norman Lear in Conversation with Phil Rosenthal” on Thursday, March 12 at 8 p.m. in the Bram Goldsmith Theater. The event is part of The Wallis’ ongoing new series, “Arts & Ideas: Conversations at The Wallis”.A legend in the television industry, Lear created “All in the Family”, one of the most groundbreaking series in history.
Through the lens of a sitcom, the series broke television taboos by brazenly examining the political, social and cultural issues of its time, including racism, homosexuality, women’s rights,
abortion and breast cancer. During a nine-year run in the 1970s, “All in the Family” earned four Emmy Awards for Best Comedy Series, and a Peabody Award in 1977. Rosenthal is the creator, writer and executive producer of “Everybody Loves Raymond”.
Tickets start at $25. The Wallis is located at 9390 N. Santa Monica Blvd.
