Jimmy Kimmel vs. Bill Simmons: An Evening of Conversation, Laughter and Romance Coming to Citi Shubert Theatre on October 15

Tickets On Sale Friday, July 8 at 10:00AM

Boston, MA – Citi Performing Arts Center announced today that late night host Jimmy Kimmel and Boston’s own sports maven Bill Simmons will unite for “An Evening of Conversation, Laughter and Romance” at the Citi Shubert Theatre on Saturday, October 15, 2016 at 8:00PM. Tickets go on sale to college students Friday, July 8, at 8:00AM and to the general public at 10:00AM.

The evening is a benefit for the Scholars at Risk Program at Harvard. For nearly fifteen years, this program has provided sanctuary to dozens of at-risk and persecuted scholars, artists, researchers, and writers from around the world. Risk may be a result of one’s work but may also be a consequence of ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or political opinion. By supplying year-long academic appointments, and by seeing fellows through next steps in their lives and careers, Harvard SAR helps scholars and creative artists escape dangerous conditions so that they may continue their work and live in safety. Harvard SAR fellows contribute to host departments through lectures, readings, sharing of research, teaching, and interactions with faculty, staff, and students.

Tickets go on sale to college students Friday, July 8, at 8:00AM and to the general public at 10:00AM. Student tickets are only available at the Citi Center Box Office and presentation of a valid student ID is required.
