Stills released at Cannes for The Performance, which is now in post-production in London.
Adapted by the film’s director Shira Piven (Welcome to Me) and co-writer Josh Salzberg from a short story by playwright Arthur Miller, The Performance is set against the backdrop of the tense, pre-war 1930s, and follows the fraught journey of Harold May (Jeremy Piven), a gifted tap dancer and second-generation Jewish American immigrant whose career has been relegated to the New York club scene. While on tour in Europe, Harold and the rest of his troupe are scouted by a German attaché (Carlyle), who offers the dancers an irresistible sum of money for a single performance. Little do they know, the show is for Adolf Hitler.
The ensemble cast includes Maimie McCoy (The Musketeers), Adam Garcia (Coyote Ugly), Lara Wolf (Quantico), and Isaac Gryn.
