Playwright David Adjmi has had his big moments in New York City, where his work has been produced -- Elective Affinities, a site-specific Off-Broadway hit starring four-time Tony winner Zoe Caldwell, Stunning atLincoln Center and Caligula at Soho Rep. His riff on the 1970s TV show Three's Company, the play 3C, produced by Rattlestick Playwrights Theatre, thrust him into the news with a question about copyright , sampling, the legality of lampooning and the boundaries of creativity. Now, Adjmi is having a big moment in Cambridge. His play Marie Antoinette, a collaboration between Harvard's American Repertory Theater and Yale Repertory Theatre, is running through Sept. 29 at the Loeb Drama Center. But Adjmi's biggest moments happen during his own passionate engagement with theater. Harvard Arts Blog asked him to reflect on his newest play, his experience of theater and advice for young playwrights. Adjmi will talk about his work in a Learning From Performers Q&A 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 24 at Farkas Hall.
