Fran Lebowitz is the legendary thinker, talker, and wit freshly exposed to the American public via Martin Scorsese’s excellent HBO documentary Public Speaking. Tonight, Lebowitz brings her amazing brain and mouth to the stage of Benaroya Hall, where she’ll engage in conversation with another renowned thinker and talker: The Stranger’s (and the world’s) Dan Savage. Come for the laser-sharp dissection of art, politics, and social trends, stay for Dan’s compulsory chiding of Fran’s lifelong love of smoking. (Benaroya Hall, 200 University St,, 8 pm, $25–$42)
