About the Film
Directed by Wilford Leach
Starring Kevin Cline, Angela Lansbury, Linda Ronstadt, Tony Azito
Joseph Papp directed the Central Park, New York, stage production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic operetta, The Pirates of Penzance, and we are lucky to have the film version directed by Wilford Leach.
Not a play, not a film of a play…….. but a staged film. And a delight it is, as you might expect since Joseph Papp was the originator of Hair and A Chorus Line.
With Kevin Kline as the Pirate King, Linda Ronstadt (and her voice) as Mabel, Tony Azito as the Policeman and the late Angela Lansbury as the Nurse.
The film will be introduced and given context by Peter Rainey, an SMSA member and cinema enthusiast, who returns to an earlier passion for films as a Program Director for a Queensland Cinema Group, now that he has retired after 40 years in the education profession.
This event will be held in person at the Henry Carmichael Theatre, Level 1, 280 Pitt Street Sydney.
