Alec Baldwin has spent three decades in the spotlight, creating memorable comic and dramatic roles in films including Beetlejuice, Working Girl, Glengarry Glen Ross, and The Departed; rounding up armloads of awards as Jack Donaghy over seven seasons of 30 Rock; and, most recently, a recurring portrayal in Saturday Night Live’s cold openings. A few days after the release of his memoir Nevertheless (Harper), Baldwin sits down for a conversation about his life and career, including the private facets of his life that the book makes public, from the personal history of the Long Island child who felt burdened by his family’s financial strains and his parents’ unhappy marriage to the young soap actor learning from giants of the theatre; the addict drawn to drugs and alcohol; the husband and father who acknowledges his failings; and the performer for whom work remains the center of everything.

A copy of Nevertheless is included in the ticket price; a signing follows the program.
