Group celebrating Strasberg’s 100th

Homage to complement 'Godfather' screening

If Lee Strasberg were alive today, the director-actor-teacher would be celebrating his 100th birthday this weekend, and to honor his centennial, theater troupe the Group at Strasberg will pay homage to him on Dec. 5 at the Egyptian Theater with a screening of “The Godfather: Part II.”

The unspooling of the pic, which marked Strasberg’s debut performance in a feature film, will be followed by a Q&A with Strasberg’s widow, Anna, actor Martin Landau and others.

Founded by Strasberg’s son David, the Group’s sophomore season includes the first American revival of Mark Kemble’s play, “Names,” under the direction of Adam Davidson; the West Coast preem of “The Have-Little” by Migdalia Cruz, under the direction of Diane Rodriguez; the world preem of “The Summer Winds” by Frank Pugliese; and a workshop production of Patricia Cardoso’s screenplay adaptation for the stage of “Jose Gregorio,” under the direction of Che’ Rae Adams, among other workshop productions, which have yet to be unveiled.

In addition, First Person Cinema, the Group’s frosh film series, will debut this season. Every other month the Group at Strasberg will screen a feature film, after which the director or star will be part of a “Talk Back” discussion exploring the film’s creation.

All screenings and “Talk Back’ discussions are free-of-charge, but reservations are required. All perfs and screenings will be held in the Marilyn Monroe Theater, located in the Lee Strasberg Creative Center in West Hollywood.

To purchase tickets or to inquire about season subscriptions and show dates, call (323) 650-7777.
