The Queen of Musical Theatre: ALLAN CARR
INSIDEOUT FLAMING HOT FILM PICK - by RAYMOND HELKIO-
Directedby Jeffrey Schwarz, the film takes us through the extraordinary accomplishments of producer Allan Carr which include; Grease andBroadway's La Cage aux Folles. It's a salacious journey through a world built on extravagance and pure audacity. Living a life of flamboyance, Allan was a genius at capitalizing on what audiences were likely to want. While his successes have shaped the landscape of musical theatre, it's his over-the-top media antics that have earned him legendary status as an outrageous promoter. The film also touches on Allan's dark side. While the hedonistic parties, excessive cocaine and beautiful boys fuelled some of most his successful productions, they may also have contributed to some of Allan's largest flops including; Grease 2, Where the Boys Are andthe Can't Stop The Music featuring the Village People.
