MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Guthrie Theater will host veteran Broadway producer Emanual Azenberg for a special onstage conversation later this month.

Guthrie artistic director Joe Dowling will lead the conversation with Azenberg on Aug. 27 at 7:30 p.m. Actor Peter Michael Goetz (gehtz), who currently is performing as Willie Clark in the Guthrie's production of Neil Simon's "The Sunshine Boys," will join the discussion.

Azenberg is closely identified with Simon. His professional relationship with the playwright spans four decades, going back to "The Sunshine Boys" in 1972.

In June, Azenberg received a 2012 Special Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre. He was elected to the American Theatre Hall of Fame in 2009.

Tickets cost $15 and are on sale through the Guthrie Box Office, by phone and online.
