Fame – Thursday, April 21
The first-ever Tribeca’s Got Talent competition will precede TFF’s screening of the 1980 classic Fame, chronicling the lives of teenagers attending a New York high school for the performing arts. Aspiring singers and dancers are invited to show off their best moves at Tribeca’s open-call song and dance competition where everyone is a winner.
A permanent fixture in popular culture and an inspiration to any kid who ever sought stardom, Fame burst into the world in 1980 with its energetic celebration of growing up, honing talent, confronting realities, finding love and living life. Following crisscrossing stories of the musicians, actors, dancers and dreamers who strive to get in and graduate from New York City’s High School for the Performing Arts, this Academy Award®-winning musical truly sings the body electric. Directed by Alan Parker. (USA)
