about michael chabon Michael Chabon is the bestselling and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of

The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, Wonder Boys, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, The Yiddish Policemen’s Union, Gentlemen of the Road, and Telegraph Avenue, among others. He lives in Berkeley, California, with his wife, the novelist Ayelet Waldman, and their children.

...Kavalier & Clay may just be the biggest novel we’ve ever tackled. Grab your mask and cape; it’s going to be an action-packed journey!

about 5 hours

To honor the scope of the novel (it’s 636 pages long!), we’ve bumped our starting time up to 6:00PM and created an evening-length event—about five hours in total—that includes as many twists, turns, and tumbles as Chabon’s epic story.

In addition to two 10-minute intermissions, there will be a 40-minute dinner break at the end of Act II. We’ll lead you to the Armory’s Food Court, where you’ll have your choice of dinner options at our partner restaurants: Plum Pantry, Skillet Counter, and Pie. We’ve been working with our partners to make everything quick, easy, and affordable for you. Plan to spend around $10 per person. Dine in our designated seating area and we’ll let you know when it’s time to return to the theatre. Prefer to make your own dinner plans? That’s fine, but please return within 40 minutes. Remember: there is no late seating at Book-It.

the amazing story


In 1939 Joe Kavalier smuggles himself, Houdinistyle, out of Nazi-occupied Prague and reappears in New York to live with his cousin, Sammy Clay. It’s the golden age of comic books and the ambitious pair—the storyteller and the artist— invent the perfect superhero for America on the brink of the Second World War. Chabon’s tale of escape, transformation, magic, and moxie is a modern-day epic­.
