JOE PAPP IN FIVE ACTS
4:00pm

The founder of the New York Shakespeare Festival and The Public Theater is profiled in this honest, in-depth film. Joe Papp brought us free Shakespeare in the Park, Hair and A Chorus Line, and nurtured many of America’s greatest playwrights, directors and actors. Learn about this complex personality through interviews with artists including Meryl Streep, Christopher Walken, Martin Sheen, Kevin Kline, and James Earl Jones.

A film that enlightens you

Introduced by Rick Dildine, Executive Director, St. Louis Shakespeare Festival

Double Feature with

GEFILTE FISH

Manya, a stubborn, independent Russian Jewish widow who dreads the thought of being moved into a home, is assigned a helper to prepare her home before Passover. Manya gets an odd surprise when Terrance, an African-American young man, shows up on her doorstep. Manya must make her infamous gefilte fish to prove her independence to her family, so she leaps out of her comfort zone and spends the day running errands and cooking with Terrence. Initially, Manya and Terrence get along like cats in a sack, but eventually, in spite of their equally stubborn and suspicious characters, they learn that help and support often comes from the most unexpected place.

A film that makes you remember

Introduction by Shayna Cohen, Filmmaker
