This play is premiering at Theatre of Note in Hollywood, Ca. on February 13th, 2009. The theatre is just blocks away from Buster Keaton's movie studio and we think our actual building can be seen in Buster's film "Daydreams". The play is a comedy about the events surrounding Buster's involvement in the film, "Film" written by Samuel Beckett. It is an ambitious and rollicking piece of theatre which includes clips from Buster's classics, original films, vaudeville, dance and straight forward comedy.

Please tell me somebody is going to video it for those of us not in the area (and, in fact, not in the States!)

Sounds very cool.

Videotaping

Unfortunately, that can't be done due to Actors' Equity rules.

Re: Videotaping

I had a feeling that'd be the case but hope springs eternal!
*sigh*

At any rate, I think it's an intriguing idea and I hope you'll post again after the fact and let us know how it went.
