Overview

The Greene Space launches our new series, Very Biggest Questions, with a discussion on marriage — the institution, the lifelong dream, the ball-and-chain; the mystery and, for some, ultimate endeavor.

Radiolab‘s Molly Webster hosts Rutgers Professor Alison Lefkovitz, Associate Professor at Queens College Kristin Celello, and Reverend angel Kyodo williams, to dissect and examine the baggage that marriage has picked up along its over 4,000 years of existence: How has it endured, through thick and thin? What’s working in the current version? And what could use some retooling?

Very Biggest Questions will feature a performance by comedy duo Your Love, Our Musical. Comedians Rebecca Vigil and Evan Kaufman select a real couple out of their audience, interview them on stage, and create an original musical about the couple’s love story.
