One of Alfred Hitchcock's best and one of the all-time great films, Rear Window comes to the beautiful historic Alex Theatre for a special 60th anniversary screening. When a broken leg leaves him wheelchair bound in his New York apartment, news photographer James Stewart passes the time by observing his neighbors -- and begins to believe one of them (Raymond Burr) may have murdered his wife. Aided by his fashionable high-society girlfriend (Grace Kelly) and his wisecracking no-nonsense nurse (Thelma Ritter), Stewart sets out to get to the bottom of the mystery. Included in two of AFI's "Top 100" lists, Rear Window captures the Master of Suspense at the top of his game. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Street Scene is a highly dramatic musical about a day in the life of a New York tenement, where seduction, betrayal and murder all play a part. Composer Kurt Weill (Threepenny Opera) broke new ground using an unusual combination of musical styles—some Puccini-esque, some jazz, jitterbug and even gospel. _
Street Scene_ has tremendous cast and musical requirements and therefore is rarely performed. Musical Theatre Guild is pleased to present it as a special concert event.
