WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- The Westchester premiere of "Musical Chairs," the inspiring romantic film from renowned director Susan Seidelman, will be shown at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 15 in the Music Conservatory of Westchester’s Helen Demetrios and Michael Stadther Recital Hall.
A Q&A with producer Janet Carrus will follow. The screening is co-presented by Steffi Nossen Dance Foundation and the Music Conservatory of Westchester to benefit the Steffi Nossen Moving Wheels and Heels program and the Music Conservatory of Westchester's Music Therapy Institute. The Music Conservatory is at 216 Central Ave., White Plains. The film is 90 minutes. A unique blend of dance, drama and romance, "Musical Chairs" stars newcomers Leah Pipes and E.J. Bonilla as a pair of unlikely lovers in contemporary New York who must face a number of challenges, both separately and together, before finding one another -- and themselves.
Also starring Tony-winner Priscilla Lopez, Jaime Tirelli, Laverne Cox, Morgan Spector, Auti Angel, Jerome Preston Bates, Nelson R. Landrieu, and Angelic Zambrana, "Musical Chairs" was produced by Janet Carrus and Joey Dedio. Set against the exciting backdrop of competitive ballroom dancing, "Musical Chairs" is about Armando (Bonilla) a Bronx-bred Latino who aspires to be a dancer but whose only way in is as a handyman at a Manhattan dance studio, and Mia (Pipes), an Upper East Side princess who is the studio's star performer. Though worlds apart, their shared passion for dance promises to bring them together until a tragic accident changes Mia's life forever, and she finds herself in a wheelchair at a rehab facility, with her dreams of a dance career shattered. Ticket prices for the event are $10 for adults, $5 for children 18 or under and seniors and are available through musicalchairsfilm.eventbrite.com .
