In Australia, four teenagers in a Sydney theater are astounded to hear the news that a nuclear war has broken out in Eastern Europe. They try to figure out the best way they can survive the coming conflagration.
For anyone who wants a behind-the-scene view of the making of a Broadway show, this movie is for you. It tells the story of a group of actors, directors, writers, choreographers thrown together for 24 hours. They go from blank computer screen to full performance in one day. It's funny (love Rachel Dratch), it's tense and really informative. I just couldn't imagine that lyrics can be written, composed, and sung within such a short time--and on no sleep at all. It's a motivator for anyone involved in the creative fields--amazing what can be accomplished when deadlines loom. Well done, Elisabeth Sperling, so well edited.
