An absolutely must see film!
9 May 2016 | by kdelureySee all my reviews

This movie is absolutely one of my favorites! It has everything you could ever want. The story was meaningful and incredibly easy to relate to. Anyone who has ever performed on a stage, no matter the size will certainly spend this movie reminiscing on the good ol' days. Not only will you feel connected, but you'll be laughing so hard your sides hurt. Anthony Rapp and Cheyenne Jackson are a match made in comedy heaven. They're quibbles and comments had my cheeks ready to burst. Mitchell Jarvis performance was utter comedic beauty. Who knew Shakespeare could be so hysterical?! The creators of this movie truly gave Shakespeare and life in the theatre a justified, dramatic and down right witty tribute. I'll be looking for more movies to come from this extremely talented bunch!
