| Highly recommended for parents to enjoy with their children
A refreshingly heartfelt look at theater, the theater community and the many facets of the creative process. This documentary provides an insider view of the challenges, risks, joy, sweat, tears and dedication required in pursuing the creative process, particularly theater. It affords parents a wonderful opportunity to share an experience with their children and open a dialogue about the magic of theater and what it takes to really be good at something. The documentary proves the pompous absurdity of the media critics in the act of expressing their ignorance, lack of respect for process and how often they completely misjudge what they have seen. By tracking the evolution of several shows, the documentary allows the viewer to see the value in forming one's own opinions and what can happen by pursuing one's "truth" and making the necessary sacrifices and risks to do whatever one loves. The payoff in this movie is illustrating what beauty, spontaneity and truth can be revealed in live theater and the depth of dedication required by all of those who devote their life to it.
