Of Mice And Man
Broadway hit shown on a screen in The Grainstore.
Golden Globe-winner and Academy Award-nominee James Franco (127 Hours, Milk) and Tony Award-nominee Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids, Girls) star in the hit Broadway production, Of Mice and Men, filmed on stage in Broadway’s Longacre Theatre in front of a live audience.
This landmark revival of Nobel Prize-winner John Steinbeck’s play is a powerful portrait of the American spirit and a heartbreaking testament to the bonds of friendship.
Directed by Tony Award-winner Anna D. Shapiro, it also stars Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl, Country Strong) and Tony and Olivier Award-winner Jim Norton. (The Seafarer).
The production was nominated for two 2014 Tony Awards including Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Play for Chris O’Dowd.
It shattered the house record at the Longacre Theatre multiple times during its limited 19-week engagement which ended on Sunday 27 July.
Of Mice and Men began as a novella published in 1937 by Nobel Prize-winning author John Steinbeck. It tells the story of George (James Franco) and Lennie (Chris O’Dowd), an unlikely pair of friends drifting from job to job across the farms and fields of California, holding fast to their dream of one day having an acre of land they can call their own.
