Q: Is the movie like the play?

A: The movie is a high definition broadcast quality capture of the play in its entirety.  It has visual enhancements and cinematic direction to make it suitable for the screen while not detracting from the critically acclaimed play.  Reviewers have commented that it is "an excellent motion picture of the stage version" (Oklahoma Gazette), and that the direction is "aggressive and dynamic" (Film Threat).  Many theater fans complain that putting stage shows on video produces  static results. Our film is different.  Director Michael Closson skillfully captures all the emotional nuances of the live show while showcasing the vibrant energy with camera movement and dynamic editing. It was shot on four high definition cameras (including one camera on a jib!). This broadcast quality recording looks fantastic on the small or big screens and is ideal for public screenings in theaters, universities, community  groups or professional conferences!  Multiple screening formats are available to meet most theater requirements.
