Artists from three media will come together for a special event at Princeton University’s Richardson Auditorium on Sept. 19, as three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep joins the Takács String Quartet for readings from Philip Roth’s novella, “Everyman.” The readings will be interspersed with music by Franz Schubert and Arvo Pärt. The concert will take place at 7:30 p.m. The event is already sold out (in less than 12 hours); however, obstructed view seats will be put on sale on Sept. 2. In the unlikely event there are remaining tickets, they will be made available for purchase after Sept. 2 at the Frist Campus Center Box Office, at (609) 258-9220. As described by The New York Times, Roth’s “Everyman” is the story of “a nameless, multi-divorced advertising man in New Jersey grappling with family estrangement, illness and death.” The event will be presented by Princeton University Concerts, which will also collaborate with the Princeton Adult School to offer a two-session course on Sept. 15 and 16, exploring the themes of Roth’s novella.
