in Arts by

The Indie Film “Shoot Me” will be shown at USCB Center for the Arts, 801 Carteret St., on Monday, April 7 at 7 p.m.

Directed by Chiemi Karasawa, “Shoot Me” stars Elaine Stritch, Alec Baldwin, Hal Prince, George C. Wolfe, Nathan Lane, Cherry Jones, Tina Fey, James Gandolfini and John Turturro.

Now in her late 80s, Broadway legend Elaine Stritch remains as ferociously funny as ever. In this bold, hilarious and poignant portrait, the uncompromising Tony and Emmy Award-winner is revealed both on and off stage. Candid reflections about her life are punctuated with words from friends and archival footage that showcases some of the great moments from her career. Whether dominating the stage, tormenting Alec Baldwin on the set of “30 Rock,” or sharing her struggles with aging, diabetes and alcoholism, “Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me” reaches beyond the icon’s brassy exterior and reveals an inspiring portrait of a complex woman and artist.

Tickets are adults $7, seniors $6, and students $7. Contact the box office at 843-521-4145  or email Bonnie Hargrove at bhargrov@uscb.edu, or visit them online at www.uscbcenterforthearts.com.
