The Blouse Man is on the Premises: How I Turned My Catskills Bungalow Colony Summers into a Movie and a Musical | with Pamela Gray
Screenwriter Pamela Gray will talk about the joys and challenges of writing and selling her female-driven Jewish-identified screenplay, The Blouse Man, which became the critically acclaimed film A Walk on the Moon*. Produced by Dustin Hoffman and directed by Tony Goldwyn, the film won a National Board of Review Award.
A Walk on the Moon is a period piece of Jewish life in the Borscht Belt, also known as the Jewish Alps. This funny yet poignant film captures life in Bungalow Colonies set in the Catskill Mountains of New York State.
Recently Pamela adapted A Walk on the Moon into a musical, which will have its World Premiere at San Francisco’s American Conservatory Theatre in June 2018.
