From the fast-paced world of high-end New York restaurants to the Pittsburgh neighborhoods of Squirrel Hill and the Strip, Aftertaste is a keenly observed novel about rebuilding and rediscovery, about food passionately prepared and unapologetically savored, and about the singular contentment that comes with living – and loving – with gusto.

misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM Red Letter Days Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Join us for a special presentation by Pittsburgh mime artist and Chaplin expert Dan Kamin, who trained Robert Downey, Jr. for his Oscar-nominated performance in Chaplin and created Johnny Depp’s physical comedy routines in Benny and Joon

Dan will introduce Charlie Chaplin’s Red Letter Days. This newly discovered eyewitness account reveals what was going on behind the scenes in Chaplin's fun factory as he was creating the hilarious comedies that rocketed him to worldwide fame.  Written by Fred Goodwins, one of the actors in the company, the breezy narrative originally appeared in 1916 as a series of thirty-seven articles in the British magazine Red Letter.  Its republication marks a major find for cinema buffs and anyone who has ever been touched by Chaplin's artistry.  The shadow of WWI looms over every page, as Chaplin, a British subject, was being slammed by the British tabloid press for his controversial failure to enlist.  Dan annotated the book to highlight its many revelations about Chaplin and the familiar faces that populate his films.  In his talk, illustrated with colorful images, music and film from the period, Dan will reveal the backstory of this fascinating excursion into the private world of Hollywood’s first superstar.

Limit: 35 participants
