Lincoln Center and MoMA Pianist Ben Model to Bring SILENT SLAPSTICK to Stamford's Palace Theatre, 3/30
Watch an entire movie score be created before your very eyes this Sunday at Stamford's Palace Theatre! Famous Lincoln Center and MoMA pianist Ben Model will improvise at the keyboard while the audience laughs their way through classic slapstick films from the roaring 20's. Shows begin at 1:00pm and 3:00pm, and seating is limited. As part of the new Playtime at the Palace series, "Silent Slapstick" will show audiences the magic of silent films through its inventive visual humor and live music.
"The thing I love about clever physical comedy is how it entertains and delights people of all ages-children, parents, grandparents, anyone and everyone," said BT McNicholl, producing artistic director at the Palace Theatre. "We can't think of a better way to spend a Sunday afternoon!"
