National Theatre Live - STRAIGHT LINE CRAZY at the Cinema Art Theater

September 19th, 2022 - 2:00 pm

National Theatre Live -  STRAIGHT LINE CRAZY

In the National Theatre Live production of Straight Line Crazy, Ralph Fiennes (Antony & Cleopatra) leads the cast in David Hare’s (Skylight) blazing account of the most powerful man in New York, Robert Moses, a master manipulator whose legacy changed the city forever.

For forty uninterrupted years, Moses exploited those in office through a mix of charm and intimidation. Motivated at first by a determination to improve the lives of New York City’s workers, he created parks, bridges and 627 miles of expressway to connect the people to the great outdoors. The rise and fall of one of the most influential urban planners of the 20th Century is a cautionary but timeless tale to the impact the few can have on so many.

Faced with resistance by protest groups campaigning for a very different idea of what the city should become, will the weakness of democracy be exposed in the face of his charismatic conviction? [2022, UK, 180 min]
