All the Film's A Stage: A VHC Series hosted by Rick Winston

All the Film's A Stage: A VHC Series hosted by Rick Winston

Grueling rehearsals, opening-night jitters, outsize personalities: films about the world of theater have long been a staple. Join Rick Winston in an exploration of how cinema has portrayed what goes into a theater production, from audition to rehearsal to performance. Clips from several films both American and foreign will be featured, including such classics as All About Eve, Children of Paradise, and Topsy-Turvy.
This talk is free, open to the public, and accessible to those with disabilities.
Supported in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the Vermont Humanities Council (VHC).

National Theatre Live in HD: One Man, Two Guvnors

National Theatre Live in HD: One Man, Two Guvnors

Featuring a Tony Award-winning performance from host of the The Late Late Show, James Corden, the hilarious West End and Broadway hit One Man, Two Guvnors returns to cinemas to mark National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday.

Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6,000 from his fiancée’s dad. But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who’s been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers.

Holed up at The Cricketers’ Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be re-united with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple.

National Theatre Live in HD: Frankenstein

National Theatre Live in HD: Frankenstein

Frankenstein
by Nick Dear, based on the novel by Mary Shelley

Captured live in 2011 from the National Theatre stage in London, this thrilling, sold-out production became an international sensation.

Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch (Hamlet, BBC’s Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller (Elementary, Trainspotting) alternating between the roles of Victor Frankenstein and his creation. This performance features Benedict Cumberbatch as his creation, Creature.

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the increasingly desperate and vengeful Creature determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.

Scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil, are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic tale.

Rhapsody in Black

Rhapsody in Black

Rhapsody in Black is a one-man show that explores LeLand Gantt’s personal journey to understand and eventually transcend racism in America. A prismatic look at life on the color line, Gantt presents a poignant, enraging, and often hilarious travelogue through the psyche of the perpetual “other.” As he spends a lifetime struggling with what it means to be black, he ultimately understands what it means to be a man. A blistering indictment of tribalism in all forms, Rhapsody in Black deconstructs notions of race and identity–provoking thought, realigning perspectives, and sparking the conversation we need right now.

The Met Opera Live in HD: Turandot (Puccini)

The Met Opera Live in HD: Turandot (Puccini)

Franco Zeffirelli’s spectacular production returns to cinemas, with Yannick Nézet-Séguin, the Met’s Jeanette Lerman-Neubauer Music Director, conducting his first Puccini opera with the company. Powerhouse soprano Christine Goerke takes on the icy title princess, alongside tenor Roberto Aronica as the unknown prince vying for her love.

Puccini’s final opera is an epic fairy tale set in a China of legend, loosely based on a play by 18th-century Italian dramatist Carlo Gozzi. Featuring a most unusual score with an astounding and innovative use of chorus and orchestra, it is still recognizably Puccini, bursting with instantly appealing melody. The unenviable task of completing the opera’s final scene upon Puccini’s sudden death was left to the composer Franco Alfano.
