Films at Manship
The fourth feature from Sundance award-winning filmmaker Lynn Shelton, Your Sister's Sister is a tale of grief, romance and sibling rivalry that continues to showcase Shelton's extraordinary ability to portray human stories with remarkable humor, sensitivity and warmth. With raw, funny and emotional performances from an all-star cast, including Emily Blunt and Mark Duplass, Shelton once again honestly explores the complexities of interpersonal relationships while gently poking fun at her characters predicaments.

Thoroughly Modern Millie at the Manship Theatre
Thoroughly Modern Millie is a high-spirited musical romp that has all of New York dancing the Charleston. Set in NYC in 1922, this is the story of young Mille Dillmount, who has just moved to the city in search of a new life for herself. Thoroughly Modern Millie is filled with frisky flappers, dashing lead men, and a dragon-lady villainess audiences will love to hate. This event is promised to be a perfectly constructed evening of madcap merriment.
