Sunday, September 16, 2018
In 1998, award-winning filmmaker Susan Lacy chronicled the life
of composer and conductor Leonard Bernstein for PBS’ "American
Masters", the noted TV series she worked on as executive
producer. This documentary offers interviews Lacy
conducted with Bernstein’s most important collaborators such as
composer Stephen Sondheim, lyricists Adolph Green & Betty Comden
and choreographer-director Jerome Robbins. The result is a rich
portrait of the man behind the iconic music that Susan will
present with Bernstein's daughter Jamie in attendance. A
separate reception will follow.
