STAN & OLLIE
March 8 – 14
STAN & OLLIE
Laurel (Steve Coogan) and Hardy (John C. Reilly, in a Golden Globe-nominated role) — the world’s greatest comedy team — face an uncertain future as their golden era of Hollywood films remain long behind them. Diminished by age, the duo set out to reconnect with their adoring fans by touring variety halls in Britain in 1953. The shows become an instant hit, but Stan and Ollie can’t quite shake the past as long-buried tension and Hardy’s failing health start to threaten their precious partnership.

“It’s valedictory, with a sense of the ephemeral nature of life, the inevitability of regret, and the bittersweetness of looking back on past happiness.” – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
“Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly deliver dynamite performances that capture the expressions and physicality of the star comedians without ever descending into caricature.” – Jason Zinoman, New York Times
“It is simply terrific – an understated but smartly told crowd-pleaser about the legendary comedy duo in their last act, with wonderful production value, a sharp and surprisingly poignant script and brilliant performances.” – Lindsey Bahr, Associated Press
