Storyline

The Art School was always their dream. They want to dance, they want to sing, to play music, to act but above all they want to live their lives while they are still young and full of energy. Leroy, Danny, Jesse, Chris, Coco and all the others try hard because they know that they've got a long way to go till they reach fame and riches. Fame costs and here (the Art School) is where they start paying for it. Written by Xenophon Tsakanikas <ftpadmin@antigoni.med.auth.gr>

Trivia

Lee Curreri was in fact a nascent songwriter at the time he was cast as Bruno, it's part of why Alan Parker cast him in the first place. Part of why he quit is because producers were altering his music, and not featuring enough of it. See more »

I still love it.
16 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched Fame as a 13 yr old and I absolutely loved it!. I would tape it each week and and my friend and I would watch it again. I especially loved Lee Curreri aka Bruno Martelli. I dreamed of playing the piano like him. I loved each dance number also. One of my favorite episodes was the live show from London. I have a recoding of that show and I would listen to it every night as I would go to sleep. I still have every song memorized. I was so excited to see the first season released this Christmas that I bought it for myself and put it into my own stocking. I was surprised that most of the numbers of their London performance were from the first season. I have since bought a second copy and sent it to my friend and I am sending my copy to my niece to borrow. I know she will love it as much as I did. I hope that they release the rest of the seasons soon. I have more fond memories of this show than any other show I have ever watched. I wish there were more shows like it today.
