"Lost in the Stars": A Screening of the Maxwell Anderson Centennial Film
The Historical Society of Rockland County Invites You to Join Us for

Lost in the Stars
A Video Portrait of Maxwell Anderson

When: Thursday, July 18, 2019, 7:00 PM SHARP
Where: History Center, 20 Zukor Road, New City
Admission: $FREE (reservations required)

From the 1930s to the 1960s, Maxwell Anderson wrote thirty-five plays. Twenty-seven of them were performed on Broadway, and some were produced as Hollywood films. He wrote most of these works while living in a farmhouse on South Mountain Road in New City.

In 1988, one hundred years after Anderson's birth (and nearly thirty years after his death), Rockland residents, led by the actress Helen Hayes, organized a yearlong celebration of the playwright's life. In this special program, we will screen 'Lost in the Stars,' an early version of 'Memories of Max: A Video Portrait,' the film created for the Anderson Centennial.
Sponsored by Rockland Community College and and directed by Rockland County writer and producer Richard Connolly, the fifty-eight minute film examines the life and work of one of America's most prolific and award-winning playwrights. Along with interviews and images, the documentary features variations on themes from Maxwell Anderson-Kurt Weill scores performed by Jim Kunkel and Pomona resident Dan Patiris, to whom we are grateful for donating a copy of the video to the Society's collection.


As a courtesy to our guest speaker, please arrive early to avoid interruptions. The presentation will begin promptly at 7:15 pm. Latecomers with reservations may forfeit their seats. Walk-ins will be admitted only if space permits.
