Men & Chicken

Men & Chicken

is also a comedy you should be keeping tabs on. The movie launches April 22nd and it tells the story of two brothers, their complex relationship, and their families.

Opening Night

This comedy is partially about Shakespeare’s Midsummer’s Night’s Dream. But mostly, it’s about the opening night for the high school production of this particular dramatic masterpiece. Opening Night… opens on May 6th and features Anthony Rapp, Cheyenne Jackson and Jessica Richards.
