35MM: A Musical Exhibition

Bellissima Productions’ 35MM: A Musical Exhibition (March 21, 23, & 24) at the Marie Maday Theatre

“A picture is worth 1,000 words — what about a song? Can a picture inspire a song or fifteen? In 35mm, each photo creates an unique song, moments frozen in time; a glimmer of a life unfolding, a glimpse of something happening. A stunning new multimedia musical which explores a groundbreaking new concept in musical theatre… This intricately woven collection of stories told through song re-imagines what the modern American musical can be.”

~ Samuel French about 35MM: A Musical Exhibition

With music and lyrics by Ryan Scott Oliver based on photographs by Matthew Murphy, the show is a “collision of art disciplines.” 35MM has been called “soul-searching,” putting audiences and cast members into situations revolving around moments captured by photographs.

The show is a tribute to photographs and music, illuminating — through different situations and moments — that one can inspire the other.

It’s your choice to interpret: Do these moments interweave?

35MM: A Musical Exhibition was our 2018-2019 season wrap-up production performed at the Marie Maday Theatre.
