Film Series: Waiting for Guffman

1997. USA. Dir: Christopher Guest. With Guest, Eugene Levy. 84 min. 35mm print.

An eccentric community theater director with Broadway dreams leads a ragtag cast of amateurs in rehearsing a musical chronicling the history of their small Missouri town. When a real theatrical producer promises to attend opening night, emotions (and ambitions) run high. Guest’s cult classic mockumentary skewers small-town hubris.
