Have you seen the movie Sabrina? You know, the one staring Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart ... or even the updated version staring Harrison Ford and Julia Ormond? This is a Cinderella story of a chauffeur's daughter who falls in love with one of two sons of the rich Larrabee family. Sabrina escapes to Paris, in part to get over her love... or does she?
Well, this month the Ford's Theatre is now showing the play Sabrina Fair by Samuel A. Taylor. The play starts with Sabrina returning home after five years in Paris. And, in this play, Sabrina and her Dad are African American! (Photo: Tom Story as David, Susan Heyward as Sabrina and Todd Gearhart as Linus photographed by Scott Suchman at Hillwood.).
If you are in the DC area, the Ford's Theatre is offering two free tickets to the Sunday, October 10th 7:30pm showing to Black Threads blog readers. To enter the raffle for the free tickets, leave a comment and here about either the films or play Sabrina. You'll have to also leave your email address so that if you are selected, I can get in contact with you. I will randomly select a winner on Wednesday. Enjoy!
