This will be a showing of the D. A. Pennebaker documentary of the making of the Original Cast Recording of the 1970 Stephen Sondheim musical. It was almost entirely shot in Columbia Records' 30th Street Studio and is the best visual tour of the studio that exists. The recording process of the show is shown in detail, as are the trials, tribulations, and joys of all involved as they proceed and/or stumble through every part of that process.
We will listen to a commentary by 12-time Grammy winner Thomas Z. Shepard, original producer of the recording and featured in the movie, and Dan Mortensen, 30th Street Studio researcher. Other guests TBA.
This event will be at the Dolby Theater. Doors will be at 6:15 pm, program will start at 6:45 pm and end at 8:30. We must be completely out of the room by 9:00 pm.
No food or drink other than water allowed in theater.
