In Love, Gilda, director Lisa D’Apolito uses rare personal recordings and journal entries to tell Radner’s story in her own words, showing both her public and private sides. There’s plenty of the public side, including the best known characters and sketches from Saturday Night Live.  And then, there are shades of Radner the public wasn’t privileged to know: the Radner who struggled with success, fame, relationships, and a battle with ovarian cancer. Along the way, friends and admirers, including Amy Poehler, Cecily Strong, Lorne Michaels, and a host of others, offer their most cherished memories of this brilliant trailblazer. What results is a touching tribute to and a fascinating contemplation of the comedian’s enduring cultural impact.

Please note tickets are only available through the Portland Museum of Art
