Death, Sex & Money at the Music Box

A live recording of Anna Sale's beloved podcast, "Death, Sex & Money," will take place at 8pm on Monday November 14th at the Music Box Theatre. The show will explore how money, relationships and work all become intertwined. Guests on the show will include Chaz Ebert as well as writer and actor Mara Wilson, best known for her childhood roles in "Mrs. Doubtfire" and "Matilda." 

Wilson can currently be heard on Netflix's animated series, "Bojack Horseman," and hosts a show about fears and anxieties, "What Are You Afraid Of?," at Q.E.D. in Astoria, Queens. Her writing has appeared on McSweeney’sReductressCrackedThe Toast, and her first book, Where Am I Now?, is now available from Penguin.

The evening will include many other surprises including a screening of "Clueless," one of Wilson's favorite movies, after the conversation. Both Ebert and Wilson have had to process profound grief after the death of loved ones. Wilson's mother passed away during the filming of "Matilda."

Sale said, "Listeners appreciate hearing from previous guests. It’s almost like catching up with family." She also said that Ebert's appearance on her podcast was one of their most popular episodes, and so invited her for the live audience recording.
