    Lori Gardner and Malcolm Madera as Linda Lovelace and Harry Reems in The Deep Throat Sex Scandal.

    SPUNK HISTORY: In 1972, a hairdresser from Queens made a decidedly un-family-friendly movie whose poster featured the enigmatic line “How far does a girl have to go to untangle her tingle?” Harry Reems’ Deep Throat went on to gross $600 million, scandalizing conservatives and loosening sexual mores along the way. The Deep Throat Sex Scandal, now in previews at the Bleecker Street Theatre directed by Jerry Douglas and written by David Bertolino, goes behind the scenes of the story. 8PM; through December 19. 

    GO FISH: You like bouillabaisse. Adam Gopnik likes bouillabaisse. The New Yorker writer and Paris to the Moon scribe will be at Savoy as the resto kicks off its fall dinner series; he’ll provide some background about the seafood stew as you put away ladle-fuls of the fragrant French stuff. 6:30PM.  

    TWAIN SHALL MEET: Mark Twain—the David Sedaris of his day, people—gets fêted by a cluster of literati at the Morgan Library: Toni Morrison, the NYT’s Frank Rich and wit-purveyor Fran Lebovitz (who we wish we heard more from) will assemble for Reading Mark Twain: A Conversation at 6:30PM.
