You may recognize Anthony Rapp from the Rent original cast or Cheyenne Jackson from those shorts he rocked in Xanadu. But in their newest film, Opening Night, they take on a role behind-the-scenes to a group of high school theater kids.
Rapp plays Logan Joyce, a high school theater teacher who desparately wants to pull off a quality play before the school cuts his funding. Jackson is Eli Faisel, a successful actor and old friend of Logan who returns to see their production of Midsummer Night's Dream. The film includes gay teenagers, vengeful nerds, and the ghost of William Shakespeare.
Opening Night is available May 6 on VOD. Watch the trailer below:
