Conceived as a “book club” for movie musicals, Porchlight asks attendees to watch a selected film, RSVP to receive the Zoom link and come prepared with questions, comments or just to enjoy the live conversation. Since May 2020, almost 50 films from the Golden Age of movie musicals to recently released musical films have been discussed with attendees participating in conversations with a variety of hosts and special guests. “Funny Girl,” starring the Academy Award-winner Barbra Streisand, in the role she created on Broadway, is the subject for the Frazin-Vilanch led conversation.
