From Hannibal Lecter in Manhunter to King Lear with the Royal Shakespeare Company to media magnate Logan Roy in the global smash hit series Succession, Brian Cox is renowned as one of the greatest actors of his generation.
Now, as he publishes his eagerly awaited memoir, Putting the Rabbit in the Hat, he sits down for a career interview on our stage. He’ll talk about his remarkable, rags-to-riches life story — growing up in poverty-stricken Dundee, Scotland, being raised by his siblings, and getting his start at Dundee Repertory Theatre. He’ll talk about growing up in the 1950s, his incredible rise to stardom, his portrayals of Churchill, Picasso, LBJ, J. Edgar Hoover, and Marlon Brando. He’ll share stories of working with John Gielgud, Laurence Olivier, Ian McKellen, Peter O’Toole, Alan Rickman, Lauren Bacall, Scarlett Johansson, and more. Don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity to hear from one of film and theater’s true icons.
