A group of esteemed School of Drama alumni will return to Carnegie Mellon University for a special screening. On April 16th, Star Trek actor Zachary Quinto, Neal Dodson, Corey Moosa and Victor Quinaz will present their independent film Breakup at a Wedding in the University Center’s McConomy Auditorium.
Breakup is a romantic comedy that features Alison and Phil on the eve of their wedding. Alison gets cold feet and decides to break off the wedding, but rather than face the embarrassment of calling off the ceremony, she suggests to Phil that they proceed. Phil is more than game, as he’s secretly hoping a surprise gift he has for Alison will ultimately change her mind. Yet once the guests begin to arrive, more complications ensue than either of them could have ever imagined, and it’s all caught on tape by their wedding videographer.
Quinaz directed the film and it was produced by Quinto, Dodson and Moosa’s Before The Door Pictures, a production company that also made Margin Call and All Is Lost. The cast features several CMU Drama alumni, including the aforementioned Moosa and Quinaz, as well as Michael Lidondici, Brian Shoaf, Sian Heder and Haj Chenzira-Pinnock.
Showtime is 4:30 p.m. Several members of the cast and production company will participate in a Q&A session with the audience after the screening. Admission is $10, $5 with a valid CMU ID. Tickets are limited and are available for advance purchase at the Purnell Center Box Office. Tickets purchased at the door must be paid with cash or check only. All proceeds will go to the Senior Showcase Fund, which helps graduating School of Drama students promote their skills to talent scouts, agents and other entertainment industry professionals on the West Coast and East Coast.
