“Madonna: Truth or Dare,” 25 Years Later

Friday, August 26, 2016
Alek Keshishian was 26 years old when he was tapped to direct this all-access documentary about Madonna's 1990 Blond Ambition tour. Originally titled In Bed with Madonna, the movie revealed the sexy, silly, and steely sides of the Material Girl at the height of her popularity. It also anticipated reality TV in the ways it exposed and revealed the "real" person behind the performer. Comedian, talk show host, and best-selling author Chelsea Handler interviews Keshishian at this special screening of the film at the Metrograph in the Lower East Side.

Handler is not known for shying away from controversy and she's sure to elicit some funny, surprising secrets from Keshishian. Plus, Metrograph is a great, new venue with a gorgeous bar and restaurant and highly curated candy selection. Make a night of it by getting dinner before or after the show (try the burrata!).
