Tarantino in Concert at The Long Center for SXSW

The hit Los Angeles based series “For the Record” will stage their world theatrical premiere of the live concert experience on Wednesday, March 14, during the 2012 SXSW Festival.
The hit Los Angeles-based series “For the Record” will visit The Long Center for the Performing Arts during SXSW 2012 for the world theatrical premiere of Tarantino in Concert. The live concert experience on Wednesday, March 14, brings the movies of noted filmmaker Tarantino to life through the soundtracks he meticulously integrated into each of his films.
Conceived and directed by Shane Scheel and Christopher Lloyd Bratten, the production's design team will include Emmy Award-winning lighting director Travis Hagenbuch along with Matthew Steinbrenner and Perry Freeze. Tarantino in Concert was originally staged a year and a half ago in Los Angeles as the first show in the “For The Record” series - which celebrates songs and moments from the body of work by a featured director. The 25th anniversary retrospective highlights hit Tarantino-directed films that include Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Four Rooms, Kill Bill Vol. 1 and 2, Death Proof and Inglourious Basterds.
“To watch this idea and show grow over the past year and a half from an intimate concert in front of about 40 friends to now performing at The Long Center for the Performing Arts for over 2,000 people has been an incredible journey,” said creator Scheel. “Having Quentin Tarantino come to see For the Record: Tarantino in Concert - and absolutely love it - reaffirmed that what we are presenting is truly something special and unique.”
The rotating ensemble of film, television, record and Broadway talent come together to create a unique fusion of music, theatre and film that brings motion pictures to life in a concert setting. Past shows in the series have highlighted the works of Baz Luhrmann, John Hughs and the Coen Brothers.
The Austin performance cast is slated to star Tracie Thoms (Tarantino’s Death Proof), Anneliese van der Pol (Disney’s “That's So Raven”), Jackie Tohn (Bravo’s “Platinum Hit”), Von Smith (Fox’s “American Idol”), Rogelio Douglas Jr. (Broadway's In The Heights), Ginifer King (Broadway's Gypsy), Jason Paige (Blood Sweat and Tears), Darryl Semira (Broadway's Mamma Mia). Anderson Davis (Broadway's South Pacific), Steve Mazurek (TNT’s “Hawthorne”), Ben Goldberg (NBC’s “ER”), Lisa Datz (Broadway’s The Full Monty) and Danielle Truitt (Disney’s The Princess and the Frog). The performance will also include Tawny Dolley, Dionne Gipson, Tinuke Oyefule and Margaret M. Spirito.
Tickets range from $24 to $49, and the performance will begin at 8 p.m. The Long Center for the Performing Arts is located at 701 W. Riverside Drive at the corner of Riverside and South First Street. For more information and reservations, call (512) 474-LONG (5664) or visit www.TheLongCenter.org.
