The Florida Holocaust Museum is thrilled to present the nation's first public screening and celebrity panel discussion of the 2015 Signature Theatre Off-Broadway revival production Incident at Vichy - an original Arthur Miller play, directed by acclaimed Broadway Director Michael Wilson and starring Emmy Award-winning actor Richard Thomas. View this exclusive screening at The Tampa Theatre on Monday, May 2 at 7:30 pm. The inspiring play is brought to you in film format by co-producers THIRTEEN Productions and BroadwayHD.
We invite you to join us in a special post-film panel discussion lead by Director Michael Wilson and Vichy Scholar Brian Phillips, with Incident at Vichy star Richard Thomas joining the discussion remotely.
The synopsis for the film itself paints a riveting picture: At the height of World War II In Vichy, France - an area that was supposedly a "free zone" - nine men and a boy are rounded up under suspicious circumstances. As ominous reports of far-off camps and cattle cars packed with prisoners begin to circulate, the men battle over politics, philosophy and how to escape.
With a captivating story like this, all three installments of the play have received glowing reviews in The New York Times. For the play's current 2015 Signature Theatre Off-Broadway revival, Charles Isherwood writes: "What's appealing about this rare chance to see Incident at Vichy is the opportunity that it affords to hear Miller's ethical insights and piercing intelligence resounding with such unbridled forthright eloquence."
Sponsorship opportunities are available! All sponsors will be invited to a pre-screening VIP reception at the Tampa Theatre wth drinks, hors d'oeuvres, reserved theatre seating and photo opportunities with Director Michael Wilson, Vichy Scholar Brian Phillips and special guests.
