123 West 43rd St. between Sixth & Seventh Aves.
Monday, November 4, $33-$38, 8:00

Fresh off his November 1 appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher, genius astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson — the director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History, the future host of the Cosmos television series, and the bestselling author of such books as Space Chronicles: Facing the Ultimate Frontier, Death by Black Hole: And Other Cosmic Quandaries, and the controversial The Pluto Files: The Rise and Fall of America’s Favorite Planet — will host a special live edition of his weekly StarTalk radio show on November 4 at Town Hall. In recent weeks, StarTalk has featured such guests as Dan Aykroyd, Buzz Aldrin, Questlove, Dr. Ruth Westheimer, rapper GZA, Joe Rogan, and Anthony Bourdain discussing such topics as storms, ghosts, the speed of light, asteroid mining, aliens, sex, human endurance in space, and the coming zombie apocalypse. At Town Hall he will be joined by comic cohost Eugene Mirman and special guests; attendees are invited to submit a question on Tyson’s blog in advance, and if yours is selected, you will get the chance to ask it live at the show, then go backstage afterward and meet the man himself. Among the cosmic queries so far? “Could it be that everything around us is simply an illusion?,” “How will the human race end?,” and “Other than yourself, who would you want as the human race’s first representative to an alien race?”
