Cutler Majestic Theatre

Boston, MA 02116
United States of America
On Thursday, November 8, host of WBUR's On Point Tom Ashbrook and former ABC News anchor Carole Simpson and Journalism faculty member will moderate a post-election discussion.
Presented in partnership with MassINC, CommonWealth magazine, and WBUR, the 90-minute discussion titled "Behind the Curtain: What Just Happened? What's Next?" will explore the outcomes of the national and state-wide elections and the implications they have on politics and policy, both here and in Washington.
The evening's discussion will consist of two segments:
Simpson will moderate "What Just Happened?"—A look at the outcomes and influencers in the big races two days after the wins and losses, and a look ahead at what might happen politically as a result.
Ashbrook will moderate "What's Next?"—An examination of the policy implications of both the state and national elections: from the fiscal cliff and Obamacare to the Supreme Court.
The event starts at 6:30 pm. The program is free, but general admission seating tickets are required. For free ticket information, visit cutlermajestic.org or call 617-824-8000.
Sponsors: Nellie Mae Education Foundation, Seniorlink, The Boston Foundation.
This event is not open to the public.
