At the Center of a Stool Boom
The Midwest town of Blaine may have made a name for itself during the great stool boom, but years later the "bastard people" on its city council couldn't even afford to give Corky St. Claire a penny for his thoughts, much less the $100,000 he requested to produce a small musical. Not one to have his passion hindered, St. Claire wrote, directed and starred in a musical stage performance about the town's 150-year history. His struggles have been documented for your entertainment in the mockumentary, Waiting for Guffman, directed and co-written by Christopher Guest. Whether there's a stool boom in your life, or you've just been"working, building, never stopping, never sleeping," take a break and watch this film in Annette Strauss Square, 2403 Flora St. The movie begins at 8 p.m. There's no need to sell your jewels, admission to the screening is free, but there are limited chairs available, one of which is reserved for Broadway critic, Mort Guffman, so make a chair reservation unless you want to sit in the grass. For more information on Sunset Series screenings or to RSVP, call 214-720-0555 or visit attpac.org.
