Representing a collision of artistic disciplines as disparate as musical theatre, photography, and pop/rock music,” 35mm, according to press notes, “pushes the limits of self-expression to create an art form utterly its own. A collection of ‘snapshot stories’ are woven together as each of the evening’s original songs is performed – with gusto and musical virtuosity — while the audience is immersed in stunning projections of the photography that inspired it. 35mm brings the connection between pleasures visual and aural into razor-sharp focus, creating a singular, multi-sensory emotional journey.
35mm: A Musical Exhibition was produced by Tony-winning producer John Johnson in association with Very Intense Productions, and received an initial concert production at Galapagos Art Space in the spring of 2012. Thereafter it has been performed all over the United States in over two dozen productions, as well as around the world in Canada, England, Scotland, and soon Japan in a new translation. In 2014, it was acquired for licensing by Samuel French.
