The Actors Fund has announced a partnership with the Jacob Burns Film Center to create the new film series Life on the Stage: Conversation and Film.

The series will focus on the stories, work, and lives of people in the performing arts. It will kick off May 1 with Lonny Price's Merrily We Roll Along documentary, Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened. The evening will feature a screening of the film, as well as a discussion with director Price, fellow original cast member Liz Callaway, and veteran Broadway producer Dori Berinstein.

Located in Westchester County, the Jacob Burns Film Center connects audiences to filmmakers through special events and post-screening discussions. Over the years, the JBFC audience has gotten behind-the-scenes accounts of the process of filmmaking from the perspectives of directors, producers, actors, writers, and more. This new partnership will allow the JBFC to bring audiences into the world of the performing arts in a similar way.
