To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the dance-centric cult favorite Center Stage, stars from the film reunite for a virtual discussion September 1 at 7:30 PM ET. The free live stream airs on American Ballet Theatre's YouTube channel with viewers are encouraged to donate to the company's Crisis Relief Fund.
Set to participate are Zoe Saldana (Guardians of the Galaxy), Amanda Schull (Suits), Sascha Radetsky, and Ethan Stiefel. The latter two were members of ABT while filming (Radetsky now serves as the artistic director of the organization's Studio Company). CNN's Poppy Harlow will moderate.
The 2000 film, a staple for theatre and classical dance fans, follows the ups and downs of a group of ballet hopefuls at New York City's fictional American Ballet Academy. The cast also includes Tony winners Debra Monk, Donna Murphy, and Priscilla Lopez, as well as Tony nominee Peter Gallagher.
