Lena Dunham, Purim enthusiast. The Golden Globe-winning writer/director/nice Jewish girl will headline The Jewish Museum’s Purim ball on Wednesday, February 27, where she will deliver the evening’s Purim spiel.

According to the Museum, “Ms. Dunham will bring her brilliant sense of humor to the annual telling of the Purim story, which she will interpret in her own unique style for the evening’s 850 guests from the worlds of art, fashion, entertainment and philanthropy.”

We’ll be there, of course, chronicling the whole thing spiel by spiel. Dibs on dressing up as Shoshanna.
