Multi-Entertainment Production & Investment Vehicle, “Sterling 2 Ent”, Partners with “An Evening with Pacino” for its UK/European Premiere
Sterling 2 Ent, the multi-entertainment production and investment fund established by media, property entrepreneur Teji Singh, has announced its latest partnership, An Evening with Pacino, taking place at the London Palladium on the 2nd of June 2013 for its European premiere.
Tickets for the eagerly anticipated event with Al Pacino went on sale on Friday 5th of April, and sold-out in less than 24 hours, as demand soared to see the legendary actor of the silver screen. ‘An Evening with Pacino’ will explore the myriad highlights of one of the most celebrated careers in acting history, from Al Pacino’s time off-Broadway in the 60s right up to the present day, with the actor himself, in intimate theatre surrounds. The evening will include an on-stage interview projected on a state-of-the-art large screen, bringing the action closer to the audience. This very special event will also give audience members a rare chance to speak directly to Al Pacino in an audience question and answer session.
Sterling 2 Ent’s partnership with the event came about through event promoter Rocco Buonvino introducing Teji to the reputed British and Hollywood film producer Barry Navidi. Barry shares a very close working relationship with Al Pacino and has produced several of Pacino’s films including Merchants of Venice, and the forthcoming docu-drama Wilde Salome and the forthcoming feature film King Lear.
