Aaron Spickelmire, assistant organizer, contacting you about the 2019 Stage to Screen Film Series, taking place at the Bing Crosby Theater throughout this summer.

Experience the play in cinemas, filmed live on stage as part of National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday. Small Island embarks on a journey from Jamaica to Britain, through the Second World War to 1948 – the year the HMT Empire Windrush docked at Tilbury. The play follows three intricately connected stories. Hortense yearns for a new life away from rural Jamaica, Gilbert dreams of becoming a lawyer, and Queenie longs to escape her Lincolnshire roots. Hope and humanity meet stubborn reality as the play traces the tangled history of Jamaica and the UK. A company of 40 actors take to the stage of the National Theatre in this timely and moving story.

Stage to Screen Film Series--"The Tragedy of King Richard the Second"

**This is not an official Meetup, it's the 2019 Stage to Screen Film Series at the Bing Crosby Theater I wanted to bring to everyone's attention. There will be no formal get-togethers before or after the show.** Hello, film and stage lovers! Aaron Spickelmire, assistant organizer, contacting you about the 2019 Stage to Screen Film Series, taking place at the Bing Crosby Theater throughout this summer. Theses are stage plays, performed in front of a live audience in the recent past, that are filmed and edited and then presented as motion pictures. The fifth (and final) film on Sunday, September 15 is a new production of THE TRAGEDY OF KING RICHARD THE SECOND, starring the great British thespian Simon Russell Beale. Here are the details: The Tragedy of King Richard the Second Date: Sunday, September 15, 2019 Showtime: 2:00 PM Simon Russell Beale plays William Shakespeare’s Richard II, broadcast live from the stage of the Almeida Theatre in London to cinemas. This visceral new production about the limits of power will be directed by Joe Hill-Gibbins, whose previous plays include Little Revolution at the Almeida and Absolute Hell at the National Theatre. Richard II, King of England, is irresponsible, foolish and vain. His weak leadership sends his kingdom into disarray and his court into uproar. Seeing no other option but to seize power, the ambitious Bolingbroke challenges the throne and the king’s divine right to rule. Simon Russell Beale returns to National Theatre Live screens following broadcasts of Timon of Athens and King Lear, and his recent role in the National Theatre’s critically acclaimed production of The Lehman Trilogy. Though each broadcast is filmed in front of a live audience in the theater, cameras are carefully positioned throughout the auditorium to ensure that cinema audiences get the ‘best seat in the house’ view of each production. Where these cameras are placed is different for each broadcast, to make sure that cinema audiences enjoy the best possible experience every time. There is a general admission fee of $12 per person, with tickets available at the door and on the Bing website (http://www.bingcrosbytheater.com/events/1662/the-tragedy-of-king-richard-the-second). I hope anyone who is able to attend enjoys the film, and welcomes the opportunity see these highly acclaimed stage productions on the Bing's big screen throughout the summer.
