“A MID-SEMESTER NIGHT’S BAD DREAM”
From Marina Productions comes OPENING NIGHT: A peek behind the curtain of youth, competition, and apparition, where the backstage of a high school drama production has never looked so Shakespearian.
Take a look at the newly released trailer here and download below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_ujvyGTsZo
OPENING NIGHT stars Broadway favorite Anthony Rapp (Rent) as a washed-up Broadway director and American Horror Story star Cheyenne Jackson (AHS: Hotel, 30 Rock) as a disenchanted TV actor guiding high school students through a stage performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Be sure to check out OPENING NIGHT on digital and VOD platforms on May 6th.
When New York’s hottest new theater director Logan Joyce (Anthony Rapp) detours his career to teach drama at a Pittsburgh high school, he invites old pal and jaded TV star Eli Faisel (Cheyenne Jackson) to attend opening night of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The performance becomes a loose adaptation, however, as the young actors compete for Eli’s approval, and the Bard himself (Mitchell Jarvis) appears seeking vengeance.
