From her early days working the improv circuit in Toronto to landing a job as the first person cast in SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE’s original Not Ready For Prime Time Players, Gilda Radner used her prodigious comic gifts to build indelible characters that have influenced generations of comic performers. Lisa Dapolito’s LOVE GILDA uses Gilda’s own words to look back and reflect on her life and career, weaving together recently discovered audiotapes, rare home movies, and diaries to create a unique window into the honest, whimsical world of this beloved performer and comedienne.
Q&A with director Lisa Dapolito and producer Bronwyn Berry to follow.
