A fun glimpse into a dysfunction world of high school theater
20 May 2016 | by DolphenSee all my reviews

A far out ride through the Shakespearean production of a high school play. A good cast of characters feel their way through often farcical circumstances. I did plays in high school and we were often an 'odd-lot' to say the least. This production takes that to a whole new level... Shakespeare is an often over-used theme in the film world, however this is a completely different take in my opinion. I'd be interested to know what the budget was. Gives hope to small budget film makers. If you're a fan of off-beat productions that exist outside the big studio world then you will probably enjoy this as much as I did. This film appeals to a broad audience of adults and teens. Great performances by Anthony Rapp, Cheyenne Jackson and Mitch Jarvis and several new actors that we will see more of!
