Come to The Museum of Arts and Design for a rare 35mm screening of Ken Russell’s classic, The Boy Friend.
The Boy Friend is a musical extravaganza set in the French Riviera of the 1920s. After the star of a low-budget theater production sprains her ankle, the assistant stage manager, played by Twiggy, must perform in her place. With Ken Russell’s signature maximalism and spectacular costumes by Shirley Russell, The Boy Friend draws from a pastiche of Old Hollywood films and Busby Berkley musicals, creating a gloriously over-the-top Art Deco look.Buy tickets/get more info now
