Mark Your Calendars: The New York Times’ Arts & Leisure Weekend Is Coming In January

Some of the guests slated to participate include CBS anchor Katie Couric, who will be interviewed by Gail Collins; Food Network star Ina Garten, interviewed by Alex Witchel; James Levine, music director of the Metropolitan Opera and the Boston Symphony Orchestra, interviewed by Daniel Wakin; Terence Winter, the co-creator of “Boardwalk Empire,” will be interviewed by Charles McGrath along with actors Steve Buscemi and Paz de la Huerta. Additional interviews will be conducted with pianist Lang Lang; Annie Proulx, author of Brokeback Mountain; actor/director Robert Redford; actor/director/producer Kevin Spacey; and film and stage director Julie Taymor.

The weekend will also include performances by the likes of Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong and American Idiot director/co-writer Michael Mayer, who will be interviewed by Patrick Healy. There will be a salute to the music of Tim Rice (aka the writer of nearly every Disney song you’ve sung into a hairbrush) and a performance by Rufus Wainwright and Martha Wainwright.

So save the date. But, please, leave your hairbrushes at home.
