Does the price of Hamilton tickets give you sticker shock? Mechanics’ holds a collection of film adaptations of plays and musicals that members can check out for free. Stop by the DVD and Blu-ray display on the 2nd Floor, and enjoy these titles from the comfort of your home.

Heather says:

It seems like a natural progression when plays are translated into films, allowing everyone to enjoy the biggest hits on Broadway with a ten dollar ticket and a bucket of popcorn. (I hear rumors of a Hamilton adaptation!). But lately, it seems like there's a trend in the opposite direction – from the big screen to the stage. It's always interesting to see plays that were adapted from film, especially if you compare and contrast with the film version, either before or after seeing it onstage. My SHN subscription this season included Finding Neverland, and next season I'll be seeing Waitress and School of Rock. Looking East to Broadway, there's also Mean GirlsA Bronx TaleGroundhog Day, and Amelie.

Myles’ recommends:

Torch Song Trilogy – Harvey Fierstein plays a famous drag queen who deals with loss, a turbulent relationship with his mother, finding love and raising an adopted teenager. This film version is a condensed two-hour version of Fierstein’s four-hour play, which won two Tony Awards for Best Play and Best Actor in Play.  If you’re in the mood to cry one minute, and laugh the next, check out this classic LGBT drama.

Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf – Edward Albee recently passed away in 2016, leaving behind a career that spanned over fifty years. I’ll never forget sitting behind him during a performance of The Lady from Dubuque. Albee’s best known play, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, was adapted for the silver screen in 1966 with an all-star cast featuring: Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, George Segal, and Sandy Dennis. The library also holds Albee’s A Delicate Balance.

Uncommon Women and Others - This screen adaptation of the Off-Broadway play by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award Winning feminist playwright Wendy Wasserstein, was funded through PBS and stars Meryl Streep, Swoosie Kurtz, and Jill Eikenberry. The play examines three former classmates as they rehash their college years over lunch.

Bobbie recommends:

Bullets over Broadway,  Rent,   Billy ElliotCabaretHairspray (2007),   Moulin Rouge (1952), and   Black Swan.
