Everyman Theatre and the Maryland Film Festival (MdFF) are pleased to announce “Everyman at the Parkway,” a season-long partnership and six-part screening series that will bring influential films to the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Parkway in conjunction with Everyman Theatre’s 2017/18 season. Whether artistically, structurally or thematically, each film/play coupling aims to inspire conversation and draw connections between the material exhibited on stage and on screen—and every film will be introduced and accompanied by a post-screening audience discussion, hosted by the Everyman Theatre artist who selected that pairing.
“To eat good food is to be close to God,” asserts one of the main characters in this sumptuous classic—perhaps the greatest food film of all time—about two Italian-American brothers struggling to save their failing restaurant in the face of culture clash, stiff competition, brotherly love and uncompromising standards. Roger Ebert wrote that it “is about food not as a subject but as a language—the language by which one can speak to gods, can create, can seduce, can aspire to perfection.” Everyman Theatre Founding Artistic Director Vincent M. Lancisi (director of Aubergine) will introduce the screening and host an informal discussion following the film.
Tickets are available for purchase 1-2 weeks prior to the event.
