Music Institute of Chicago
Bookends & Beginnings Bookstore invites you to an evening with actor Robin Ellis, who starred in the original 1970s Masterpiece Theater series Poldark as the brooding, irresistibly attractive Captain Ross Poldark and is the only actor from that cast who also appears in the current BBC remake (now playing Reverend Halse). His memoir, Making Poldark, focuses mainly on the making of the original series, but has just been updated with photos from the new one. This event is a rare opportunity for Poldark fans to catch him in a U.S. appearance, where he will be interviewed by the Chicago Tribune’s chief theater critic, Chris Jones. Tickets are $20 plus service fee and include a copy of Making Poldark. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2891728.
