Sal Piro, probably the person who is most responsible for this movie's extended popularity for the last 40 years, played the photographer. See more »
At the start of the film we see the projectionist start a single 35mm projector loaded with a single 1000 ft reel. This would only provide about 20 minutes of the film at most and nowhere near enough footage for the whole movie. See more »
If that one line had been in the minds of everyone involved the show may have been better. I found the changes to the show inappropriate. There was a specific formula within the show that allowed the character types to play off one another. Yet, that still would not have saved the show.
The actors did well at hitting their marks and saying their lines. It reminded me of myself when reading out loud in 4th grade. This is where don't dream it, be it comes it. If the actors embraced their characters and brought them to life, then the show could have been successful, but they didn't. Yes, they moved to their spot and barked out their words like good actors. Beyond that, there was nothing in their performance that made me want to believe they were the characters they were portraying.
If you want to see RHPS, go and watch the original at a theater that will allow people to act out the roles on stage.
