The two will speak about their decades-long friendship and artistic reunion on “Gloria: A Life.”  Mann will discuss how she came to adapt Steinem’s life for the theater, their resulting friendship, and the choices she made to shape and tell Steinem’s story. McDonnell (“Execution of Justice,” “Dances with Wolves,” “Passion Fish,” “Major Crimes,” “Battlestar Galactica”) will talk about her celebrated career as a performer, what drew her to this project, and her approach to playing Steinem. A Q&A with the audience will follow the discussion. Community Room
