Lena Dunham is celebrating the end of "Girls" by going on the road. Dunham and the HBO comedy's co-creator, Jenni Konner, are producing "Lenny: America IRL Tour," which celebrates their weekly feminist newsletter LennyLetter.com. The six-city jaunt includes a stop at St. Paul's Fitzgerald Theater on June 3.
The evening, which will include readings, music and film, will feature Dunham and nine other Lenny contributors, including "Saturday Night Live" cast member Sasheer Zamata and songwriter Katie Crutchfield, who records under the name Waxahatchee.
"Imagine if the beat poets weren't a bunch of ego-driven guys and there were no methamphetamines? Well, there you go!" said Dunham and Konner in a press release.
Others coming to the Fitz include writers Jenny Zhang, Chloe Caldwell, Kaitlyn Greenidge and Rachel McKibbens, and comedians Charla Lauriston, Morgan Murphy and Jacqueline Novak.
"We will be talking, reading, playing music, showing films, asking and answering questions for, by, and of the women we meet," Dunham and Konner said. "Our plan is to create a sense of community in every city we stop in."
Tickets go on sale Friday and are priced at $35. For purchase, go to fitzgeraldtheater.org or lennyletter.com/irl.
