Quotes

Kippy Newberg: You're on the stage, and there we're all Cyrano, all loving with no hope of true love in return; all Roxanne, loving an illusion of love; all Christian, loving with words that are not our own; all imperfect. Parading or imperfections, in spite of our fears, with one thought in mind: to play true to the end. To risk all, and to be left with only that which is most dear.

Charming independent film
20 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film today with my friend, and although neither of us have any experience with community theatre (little of that here in NYC), we found this film to be quite charming and enjoyable. Yeah, sure, it could have used a little editing, but the actors are engaging, the dialog is humorous, and the relationships of the characters, though sometimes a little clichéd, have an underlying authenticity. Community theatre is portrayed not as the graveyard of failed actors, but as a community where talent and friendships are nurtured without regard for money and advancement. And, unlike the first reviewer, I thought the acting was quite good. My friend and I especially enjoyed the twin parts played by Patty Duke, since we're both old enough to remember her dual role on her TV show. See this movie if you're tired of blockbuster, sequels, and star vehicles.
