FOLA presents Broadway Theatre Live, ‘ Present Laughter ’

Courtesy FOLA

A showing of Broadway’s “Present Laughter” will be shown at Ludlow Town Hall Saturday.

Saturday, Nov. 10, 7 p.m.—LUDLOW— “ Present Laughter ” will be the next FOLA Broadway Live movie on Saturday, Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. at Heald Auditorium at the Ludlow Town Hall.

This movie is a taped performance of the Broadway show performed in NYC in 2017. It’s like being at St. James Theatre, without paying high ticket prices.

Whatever would we do without Kevin Kline? In an age of lesser stars, he’s a bona fide matinee idol of the ideal age and with the urbane sensibility to do justice to sophisticated scribes like Noel Coward. “Present Laughter” is a delicious drawing-room comedy that Coward dashed off in 1942 to amuse himself and his friends, while engaging in a bit of sober self-reflection. Kline relishes the comic challenge in this snazzy production.

The film is free and open to everyone; donations are appreciated. Popcorn and water will be supplied.

The Town Hall is located at 37 S. Depot St., Ludlow. For more information, call 802-228-7239 or visit fola.us.
