Al Pacino's awards include two Tony Awards, the 1992 Academy Award for Best Actor, and seven other Oscar nominations for The Godfather I and II, Dick Tracy, Glengarry Glen Ross, Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon, and ...And Justice for All. He is the recipient of the American Film Institute's Lifetime Achievement Award, and after Humphrey Bogart, is the second most represented actor on the AFI's list of the 100 greatest movie quotes.

The evening will include an interview where Pacino will share his passion for acting and directing with film clips, including some never-before-seen footage. Sharing backstage tales from a lifetime in the world of theater and film, Pacino will reveal the inner workings of his most personal work and will include a question and answer session from the audience.

Gold Circle ticket holders at the $500 level will also have a meet-and-greet with Mr. Pacino. The proceeds from this event benefit the Count Basie Theatre's restoration fund.

Dallas Morning News film critic Chris Vognar wrote about the show: "Once (Pacino) took the stage ... the evening became something far rarer and more rewarding ... here we saw Pacino, the dedicated stage actor, show his gift for making each listener feel like an audience of one."

Watch Al Pacino here.
