VIDEO :Opening Night at the Film Festival

The movie THE DEAL is wonderful. Funny, clever and silly. They announced domestic distribution secured so look for it soon!

I was able to have a 30 second conversation with William H. Macy (call me Bill) to let him know that The Nashville Shakespeare Festival is one of a handful of equity affiliated theatre groups in Nashville. I welcomed him on behalf of the professional actors in Nashville both stage and screen. He took my card and said the “Felicity and I will be sure to visit the web site to learn more”. — Now lets hope the card in his pocket doesn’t get lost at some dry cleaners in LA.

High school student Timothy is gay, out, and miserable in his Leave It To Beaver-esque small town, where the all boys prep school he attends has a pretty serious fixation on rugby. His only solace is a couple of close also alienated friends and the fantasies dancing in his head of everyone in his school sexually leaning in his direction – one hunky rugby jock in particular. Timothy’s fading spirit soars, however, when his eccentric drama teacher casts him as Puck in a school production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Upon slipping into a fantastical musical daydream, he discovers a recipe to create the magical, love-remedy potion exploited in Midsummer. With his newfound ammunition, Timothy puckishly turns much of his close-minded town gay, ensnaring family, friends and enemies in chaos. After reluctantly restoring the free will he has stolen from so many, he is surprised by what remains. With a memorable performance by young actor Tanner Cohen as the affected Timothy, Tom Gustafson’s directorial debut deftly combines Shakespeare, musical numbers, and great laughs in this story of being careful what you wish for – waiting for some people to be true themselves may require a little patience.
