Actress and television personality Shirley Romaine will lead a program on the late, great playwright, Edward Albee, on Tuesday, July 18, 7:30 p.m., at the Cinema Arts Centre.
Albee’s award-winning playas are thrilling, provocative and sometimes shocking.
He insisted that our most primitive instincts keep asserting themselves in the most civilized settings.
And his life was as dramatic as his plays.
The program will include his story and scenes from his plays performed by Romaine, as well as clips from his films, “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf,” “A Delicate Balance,” and “Three Tall Women.”
A reception will follow in the Sky Room.
Romaine has appeared in plays on and off Broadway.
She is currently performing original programs incorporating theater, art, music and poetry on the Island, New York City and beyond.
She is also the host and narrator for Dance Visions, host and producer for Cablevision’s “Artscene on Long Island with Shirley Romaine” for more than 20 years, and was one of the first recipients of the Long Island Arts Council’s prestigious Advocate for the Arts Award.
The Cinema Arts Centre is located at 423 Park Avenue in Huntington.
