Celebrate Valentine’s Day with an 80th Anniversary screening of The Philadelphia Story! Midnight swims with the wrong man, drunkenness, and three potential grooms are a recipe for one of the greatest romantic screwball comedies of all-time. Arrive at 7pm for a special pre-show presentation featuring Tony Award-Winner Kelli O’Hara in a live interview for The Spark File podcast with Susan Blackwell and Laura Camien.

Kelli O’Hara is one of the biggest stars on Broadway, and her work in film, television, and opera have made her acclaim even greater. In addition to her Tony Award win for Best Leading Actress in a Musical for The King & I and seven Tony Award nominations, O’Hara has received an Emmy nomination, has earned two Grammy nominations, recorded two albums, and has starred at The Metropolitan Opera…and now she’ll be taking the United Palace stage!

Kelli will be interviewed in front of our live audience for The Spark File podcast with Susan Blackwell and Laura Camien. The Spark File is a fun, fab podcast obsessed with creativity and inspiration.

Co-Hosts Susan Blackwell and Laura Camien are entertainment industry multi-passionates. Susan Blackwell is a Broadway, film and TV actor, and a writer. She created and played characters based on herself in the original Broadway musical [title of show], and is the host of the chat show 'Side by Side by Susan Blackwell', now in its 11th year on Laura Camien is a Broadway producer, playwright + screenwriter. She was a long time VP of Communications for Blue Man Group, and Head Writer for the book, Blue Man World. They are two great tastes that taste great together.
