There’s been a spate of theatrical productions showing up on movie screens lately, but most of them have not made their way to Central Florida. (The hit Broadway revival of The Importance of Being Earnest, starring Brian Bedford, is playing in only one movie theater in the entire state of Florida — in Vero Beach. Not so convenient.)
But the recent New York Philharmonic concert version of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s Company will make it to one Central Florida screen — in Orlando — at 7:30 p.m. June 15. That’s at the Premiere Cinema 14 at Fashion Square Mall.
Here’s the link to buy tickets for that screening and others (none of which are anywhere near here). And here’s a little more info from Rick Pender, editor of The Sondheim Review:
The April 2011 Company with the New York Philharmonic was filmed in Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center and will be broadcast to a limited number of movie theaters in the USA and Canada. This will be one of the first “Broadway-casts” of its kind, beginning Wednesday evening, June 15, 2011. There may be additional broadcasts, depending on the response. Additional locations may be added, so visit this link as needed: http://nyphil.org/concertsTicks/companyonscreen.cfm
Distributed by Screenvision, this is the production that starred Neil Patrick Harris, Patti LuPone, Stephen Colbert, Jon Cryer, Christina Hendricks, Craig Bierko and Martha Plimpton.
Note: Much of the Company cast will re-assemble to perform live for the Tony Awards on CBS on Sunday evening, June 12, 2011. (Check your local listings. No details at TSR.)
