Don’t miss a stellar cast led by Mark Strong (The Imitation Game; Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) in the Young Vic’s ‘magnetic, electrifying, astonishingly bold’ production of A View from the Bridge – the Evening Standard, Guardian and Independent’s top theatre pick of 2014.

The great Arthur Miller confronts the American dream in this dark and passionate tale. In Brooklyn, longshoreman Eddie Carbone welcomes his Sicilian cousins to the land of freedom. But when one of them falls for his beautiful niece, they discover that freedom comes at a price. Eddie’s jealous mistrust exposes a deep, unspeakable secret – one that drives him to commit the ultimate betrayal.

The visionary Ivo van Hove directs this stunning production of Miller’s tragic masterpiece, re-broadcast from London’s West End by National Theatre Live.

Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter http://rosendaletheatre.org/2015/04/10/kumiko-the-treasure-hunter-3/ http://rosendaletheatre.org/2015/04/10/kumiko-the-treasure-hunter-3/#comments Fri, 10 Apr 2015 14:42:10 +0000 http://rosendaletheatre.org/?p=12097 1:00 pm | $5 MATINEE | 1 hour, 45 minutes | Drama

In this darkly comedic odyssey, Academy Award nominee Rinko Kikuchi (Babel, Pacific Rim) stars as Kumiko, a frustrated Office Lady whose imagination transcends the confines of her mundane life. Kumiko becomes obsessed with a mysterious, battered VHS tape of a popular film she’s mistaken for a documentary, fixating on a scene where a suitcase of stolen cash is buried in the desolate, frozen landscape of North Dakota. Believing this treasure to be real, she leaves behind Tokyo and her beloved rabbit Bunzo to recover it – and finds herself on a dangerous adventure unlike anything she’s seen in the movies. With Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter, indie mavericks the Zellner Bros. spin a strangely touching underdog fable, populated by eccentrics and elevated to sonic heights by a Sundance award-winning score from electro-indie outfit The Octopus Project, that will leave audiences rooting for the impossible.

Dance Film Sundays Presents: The Red Shoes (1948) http://rosendaletheatre.org/2015/04/10/12088/ http://rosendaletheatre.org/2015/04/10/12088/#comments Fri, 10 Apr 2015 14:33:30 +0000 http://rosendaletheatre.org/?p=12088 3:00 pm | $10/$9 members/$6 children | 2 hrs 13 min


RED SHOES 1A voluptuously beautiful film, about passion and the life of an artist, with a shocking ending–The Red Shoes (1948), produced, written and directed by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger is coming to Rosendale Theatre for the May 10 Dance Film Sunday, sponsored by Pegasus Footwear.  It stars Moira Shearer, Leonide Massine, Robert Helpmann, Ludmilla Tcherina, legendary ballet stars of all-time, as well as highly esteemed character actor Anton Walbrook.  The film’s plot was inspired Serge Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes; for the making of the film an actual ballet company was assembled to give authenticity to the work.  “The Ballet of the Red Shoes,” choreographed by Robert Helpmann, coming at the emotional highpoint of the film, was derived from the eponymous fairy tale by Hans Christian Anderson about the seductive red shoes that cause an unsuspecting ballerina to dance to her death.

THE RED SHOES
The Red Shoes is arguably one of the most famous classics of British cinema. The film is particularly known for its cinematography and its glorious use of Technicolor. The funds for the restoration of the original print were spearheaded by Martin Scorsese who acknowledges the influence the film had on his development as a film-maker.  It was nominated for Best Picture of 1948, and it won Oscars for Best Art Direction-Set Decoration and Original Score composed and conducted by Brian Easdale (except for “The Ballet of the Red Shoes” which was conducted by Sir Thomas Beecham).

The producing, directing, and writing team of the British Michael RED SHOES 2Powell and the Hungarian Emeric Pressburger, known collectively as “The Archers” created numerous other odes to the power of art and the imagination, always going against the realist strain of British cinema.   They forged a working alliance that lasted from the late thirties to the early seventies, and from the anti-Nazi propaganda of 49th Parallel and the astoundingly designed and edited epic The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp to the erotic, magical excesses of A Canterbury Tale, I Know Where I’m Going!, and Black Narcissus.

Dance Film Sundays, a series which started in June 2010 under the auspices of the Rosendale Theatre Collective, are held on the 2nd Sunday of every month at Rosendale Theatre.

SHE’S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE’S ANGRY resurrects the buried history of the outrageous, often brilliant women who founded the modern women’s movement from 1966 to 1971. SHE’S BEAUTIFUL takes us from the founding of NOW, when ladies wore hats and gloves, to the emergence of more radical factions of women’s liberation; from intellectuals like Kate Millett to the street theatrics of WITCH (Women’s International Conspiracy from Hell!)
