Home » Levy Lecture Series Presents via Zoom: Ed Asner: A Composite Portrait - a book in progress with Mark Larson
Ed Asner: A Composite Portrait is an intimate, behind-the-scenes oral history of Asner’s storied career as both a star of television, film, and stage and an outspoken activist as told by Asner himself and the writers, actors, producers, directors, friends, and family who know him well. Mark Larson, author of Ensemble, the definitive book about the history of Chicago theater, interviewed Asner during his research for Ensemble. After some hours of conversation, Larson suggested the idea of an oral biography to Asner, who readily agreed. At this lecture, Larson will share stories and audio clips from his interviews with Asner and others, like Gavin MacLeod, Elliott Gould, Mike Farrell, Marsha Mason, Marion Ross, Jason Alexander, Paul Rudd, and many more.
