$11.50 for Huntington subscribers and $14.50 for other patrons.
A screening of The Misfits - featuring a screenplay written by Arthur Miller for his then-wife Marilyn Monroe - is followed by a talkback with The Boston Globe film critic Ty Burr (2017 finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Criticism) and Huntington Director of New Work Charles Haugland who will discuss the autobiographical elements of the film.
About the movie: Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe both made their final film appearances in this melancholy modern Western, directed by John Huston from a screenplay by Monroe's then-husband, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Arthur Miller. Divorced and disillusioned, Roslyn Tabor (Monroe) befriends a group of misfits, including an aging cowboy (Gable), a heartbroken mechanic (Eli Wallach), and a worn-out rodeo rider (Montgomery Clift). Through their live-for-the-moment lifestyle, Roslyn experiences her first taste of freedom, exhilaration, and passion. But when her innocent idealism clashes with their hard-edged practicality, Roslyn must risk losing their friendship... and the only true love she's ever known.
Stage & Screen is a collaboration between Coolidge Corner Theatre and Huntington Theatre Company, exploring the depictions of shared themes in Huntington productions and acclaimed films.
