Experience the explosive Oscar-winning film accompanied live by composer Antonio Sanchez and his Grammy Award-winning score that provides the heartbeat of the film.
The visually stunning 2015 Oscar Award-winner for Best Picture, by maverick director Alejandro Iñárritu, stars Michael Keaton as a washed-up action star trying to reinvent his career as a credible actor and director on the Broadway stage. For this special performance, the film will be accompanied live by renowned jazz drummer Antonio Sanchez, recreating his Grammy Award-winning score.
Since 2000, he has been the drummer of choice for 20-time Grammy Award-winning guitar god Pat Metheny, touring the world and appearing on eight acclaimed recordings. Sanchez has also released four albums as a leader.
