The Vulture Festival’s Special Screening Of ‘The Overnight’

Let me start by mentioning this, I have always been a fan of the Netflix Original Series “Orange is the New Black” most notably of the character ‘Piper Chapman’ portrayed by the actress Taylor Schilling. So when I was told that the New York Vulture Festival had invited ShowBizCafe.com to the special screening of the film “The Overnight” starting Taylor Schilling, I was pleased that I would be able to see her as a character other then ‘Piper Chapman’ which I am so used to. I arrived at the Tribeca Theaters in Varick Street well before showtime. As I entered the theater I was greeted by the Vulture Festival staff, had a small chat with them about how much we were looking forward to this film and Schilling’s portrayal of not ‘Piper Chapman.’ Read More
