The Michigan Theater and Theatre Council Productions of Chicago — headed by University of Michigan alum Adam Epstein — are bringing four celebrity speakers to the area for the inaugural season of a lecture series titled Ann Arbor Conversations Presented by Michigan Radio.

This season's lineup consists of film director/writer Kevin Smith on Saturday, Sept. 19; TV culinary personality Anthony Bourdain on Saturday, Nov. 7; "PostSecret" creator Frank Warren on Friday, Dec. 4; and bestselling author and humorist David Sedaris on Wednesday, April 14.

All events will be held at the Michigan Theater, and all seats are reserved. Subscription tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, Sept. 11 at 10 a.m. and will be available at the Ann Arbor Conversations web site.

The subscription ticket package includes Anthony Bourdain, Frank Warren and David Sedaris, with packages starting as low as $105. Subscribers also have the option to add on Kevin Smith and are guaranteed prime seating for this event — tickets that have been saved exclusively for subscription ticket holders.

Only subscribers guarantee their seats for every event before the general public and will enjoy the same seats for each show (Bourdain, Warren and Sedaris). For more information, visit the Ann Arbor Conversations web site.

Individual tickets for Kevin Smith are currently on sale through Ticketmaster.
