Gables Cinema to present the best of British theater
The Coral Gables Art Cinema this weekend opens a new series of special contemporary performances from the internationally renowned National Theatre of London with the presentation of Collaborators.
This unique and groundbreaking program, for which the Coral Gables Art Cinema is the exclusive Miami venue, brings the best of British theater direct from the stage to South Florida.
Collaborators is a comic journey into the fevered imagination of the Russian writer Mikhail Bulgakov living in the Soviet Union of Josef Stalin, written by well-known screenwriter John Hodge (Trainspotting).
Moscow in 1938 is a dangerous place to have a sense of humor; even more so a sense of freedom. Bulgakov, living among dissidents, stalked by secret police, has both. And then he's offered a poisoned chalice: a commission to write a play about Stalin to celebrate his 60th birthday.
Each performance will be captured live and presented in digital high-definition projection providing audiences an extraordinary close-up view of the world-class productions that take center stage at the National Theatre of London.
The hit surreal comedy Collaborators will be presented Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 14-15, at 1 p.m. at the Coral Gables Art Cinema, 260 Aragon Ave. For tickets or details visit www.gablescinema.com.
Funding for this series has been provided in part by the Coral Gables Community Foundation.
