A new documentary film, The Show Must Go On, will be presented on Monday, August 9, 2021 at Broadway’s Majestic Theatre, home of The Phantom of the Opera, to benefit and celebrate the work of The Actors Fund in this one-night only presentation. The Film is presented by Theater director Sammi Cannold (Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in Hollywood & Entertainment), Emmy Award®-winning filmmaker Dori Berinstein (ShowBusiness: The Road to Broadway), WYSIWYG Studios, CEO Kwan-Woo Park and Elizabeth Armstrong.
The event, with a live audience, will also include appearances and performances to be announced. Tickets are available for purchase and all sales will benefit The Actors Fund, the national human services organization for everyone in performing arts and entertainment, in their mission to aid entertainment professionals in need.
In the wake of the global pandemic, The Show Must Go On chronicles the race against time to save live theater and focuses in on an army of theater makers determined to win it. In March of 2020 and for the first time in history, the performing arts were decimated worldwide when theater shut down indefinitely in every country except one: South Korea. From the frontlines in Seoul, this film follows a company of artists involved in two theatrical productions-–the World Tour of The Phantom of The Opera and the South Korean Tour of Cats—two of the productions that pushed ahead safely during the pandemic and helped show the way forward.
The event will represent the first time the Majestic Theatre has welcomed back an audience since the shutdown on March 12, 2020.
