The Bay Street Theater and Sag Harbor Cinema join forces for a special tribute to Julie Andrews to celebrate the publication of her second memoir, Home Work: A Memoir of my Hollywood Years, co-written with her daughter (and a co-founder of Bay Street), Emma Walton Hamilton. The event will feature a screening of Blake Edwards’s That’s Life! (1986), in which both Andrews and Walton Hamilton appear. After the screening, there will be a conversation with Ms. Andrews and Ms. Hamilton, moderated by SAC’s Artistic Director Giulia D’Agnolo Vallan, followed by a book signing.
Tickets are $85 for regular admission (includes a pre-signed copy of the book) and $150 for VIP admission (includes a pre-signed copy of the book with personlization to be added immediately following the Q&A).
Please note: Books must be picked up on November 10 at the screening of the film. No books will be mailed if they are not picked up at the event.
Additional signed books will be available only AFTER November 10 at Sag Harbor books until supplies last.
The sequel to Andrews’ best-selling first memoir, Home: A Memoir of My Early Years, Home Work covers her extraordinary journey in Hollywood from the beginning of her film career and the meeting with Walt Disney that led to Mary Poppins, through the worldwide success of The Sound of Music, critical praise for films like The Americanization of Emily and Hawaii! and her numerous collaborations with husband/director, Blake Edwards (S.O.B, Victor/Victoria, 10, That’s Life!, to name a few). Home Work will be published by Hachette Books on October 15th.
About That's Life!: Approaching the celebrations for his 60th birthday, successful architect Harvey Fairchild (Jack Lemmon, as a proxy for Edwards himself) is tormented by fears of aging and death and distresses his family with them. Unbeknownst to him, his renowned singer wife (Julie Andrews) is awaiting the results of a throat biopsy. Robert Loggia co-stars as a Catholic priest, alongside Felicia Farr as a fortune teller, Emma Walton Hamilton and Jennifer Edwards as the Fairchilds’ daughters and Chris Lemmon as their son. Co-written by Edwards, That’s Life! was entirely self-produced, with dialogs often improvised during filming to promote spontaneity.
