Last night the twitters lit up with word that the New Yorker had highlights from Rachel's Sunday appearance with Tony Kushner at Joe's Pub in New York City. The Public Theater is doing a series called Duets, in which two interesting but not necessarily related people talk to each other on stage. (It kind of reminds me of Sundance Channel's Iconoclasts show.) So last Sunday is was Rachel and Tony Kushner.
As I said, the New Yorker piece has highlights of what was discussed and a nice photo of the two of them on stage and it's a quick, fun read. But also worthy of note is that artist Michael Arthur was in attendance and did a drawing from the audience. Above is his in-progress picture. Click through to the Joe's Pub Facebook, which hosts a lot of his work, for the final product. Also check out his site for more galleries.
This is going to sound weird, but that is the best, most authentic rendering of Maddow's hand and gesture that I've ever seen.
