We are thrilled to be opening PETER BROOK: THE TIGHTROPE this Friday at the Music Hall. It’s a documentary about an acting class helmed by Mr. Brook and filmed with hidden cameras by his son, Simon (who will be doing Q&A’s after each 7:20 PM screening at the Music Hall, Friday, April 11 through Tuesday, April 15 as well as the 2:40 and 5 PM screenings on Saturday and Sunday, April 12 and 13). If you are an actor or just someone who has marveled at what great actors can accomplish, seek out this film and watch a master in action.
As it happens the Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA opens a Peter Brook play, THE SUIT, this week at the Freud Playhouse. “Devastation by enchantment,” sang Ben Brantley in the New York Times. There are only nine performances. A plethora of information about the production and its origins is here. And if you bring your ticket stub from the play to the Music Hall for any screening of PETER BROOK, you may buy tickets at a good discount: $6 each. Also, check out this piece the L.A. Times published today about Brook and the UCLA production.
