Best documentary ever seen
4 November 2017 | by hillfam-86948See all my reviews

As long time fans of Todrick Hall, on Mother's Day 2017, my daughter and I went to Boise, ID to see the show Straight Outta Oz live. It was the most fun we have ever had. A few months later this documentary was being shown at a film festival in SLC, UT of course we had to see it! It was wonderful to see all the hard work & dedication that was put into this production along with the love & compassion all the Team had to make the show a reality. You will laugh, cry & ponder your own dreams watching this đŸŽ„. It was so much fun to see it after we saw the show, it brought the great memories of the talent, dancing, music & fun! A must see!!
