Screening followed by Q&A with Andrew Garfield

Remaking the early 1990s musical by and about Jonathon Larson into a feature film was no easy feat, but the apparently limitless talent of Lin-Manuel Miranda is brilliantly sufficient. Anchored by Andrew Garfield’s can’t-look-away performance as Larson, with a breakout turn by Robin de Jesús and featuring an array of musical theater luminaries (including Stephen Sondheim, in spirit), the film reminds us that New York is truly the concrete jungle where dreams are made.
