Romeo & Juliet HD Film Screening

Canada, 2018

Run Time: 180 minutes 

Directed for stage by Scott Wentworth

Produced and Directed for film by Barry Avrich 

Sara Farb as Juliet

Antoine Yared as Romeo 

Seana McKenna as Nurse

Evan Buliung as Mercutio

A long-simmering animosity between two families of Verona has recently boiled over, with members of the rival households brawling in the streets. Falling headlong in love, Romeo and Juliet defy the long-simmering hatred between their families. But daring to love one’s enemy comes with a terrible cost, as the needless sacrifice of young lives brings this heartbreaking story to its tragic conclusion. 

Canada’s Stratford Festival is North America’s largest classical repertory theatre company. Each season, they present a dozen or more productions in four distinctive venues. They produce classics, contemporary dramas and musicals, with special emphasis on the plays of Shakespeare. The Luckman is pleased to partner with the Stratford Festival to screen the high-definition recordings of these live performances.

BD Wong

 

This event is FREE to the Cal State LA community (students, faculty, staff, alumni). Present your valid campus ID at the Luckman Box Office to receive your tickets.

Limit 4 tickets per ID.

General tickets: $25

Award-winning actor BD Wong is one of America’s most versatile performers. BD has been on screens big and small for the last 20 years, appearing in such hits as Law & Order: SVU, Oz, Gotham, Jurassic Park, and Jurassic World. He received an Emmy nomination for his role as Whiterose and Minister Zhang in USA Network’s Mr. Robot. 

His Broadway debut in M. Butterfly earned him a Tony Award, Outer Critic’s Circle Award, Theatre World Award, Clarence Derwent Award, and Drama Desk Award, making him the only actor to ever win all five major New York theatre awards for a single role.

BD’s experiences in an industry fraught with rejection, typecasting, and racism have given him a sharp perspective on the subjects of diversity and equality. Lauded for his resonant and inspirational messages, he speaks on issues such as self-image, Asian-American parental pressure,  the “model-minority myth,” and the challenges of multiple identities.

BD Wong makes his Luckman stage debut with a lecture focusing on these topics. The evening will conclude with an on-stage Q&A where audience members will have the opportunity to engage with Mr. Wong.

Tickets available via Ticketmaster or the Luckman Box Office.
