The theatre breeds no shortage of large personalities, and in the upcoming comedy "Blumenthal," none loomed larger than Harold Blumenthal. And with his recent passing, his legacy hangs over everyone around him in writer/director Seth Fisher's feature debut.

Starring Brian Cox, Fred Melamed, Laila Robins, Mark Blum and Mei Melancon, the film tracks Harold Blumenthal's eccentric family from his nephew Ethan, who's trying to navigate relationship issues, Harold's brother Saul who is plagued with constipation, and Saul's second wife Cheryl who wants more out of life. And of course, between them, there is various tension and disagreements, highlighted in this exclusive clip where a visit to the theatre turns into a comic confrontation.

"Blumenthal" opens on Friday, March 28th in New York City. And if you catch the 8 PM screening at Village East, it will be followed by a Q&A with Seth Fisher.
