Bigger than the Sky

Synopsis:

Down-on-his-luck Peter (Marcus Thomas) auditions for a small role in a community theater production of Cyrano de Bergerac. He’s shocked when a near breakdown lands him the lead, and suddenly he’s thrust into “the stage life,” a far cry from his dead-end day job. My Big Fat Greek Wedding‘s John Corbett co-stars as the manic leading man, and Amy Smart is the experienced young actress guiding him through the madness that is theater.

Directed by: Al Corley

Kansas native Al Corley is probably most well-known as an actor, having originated the role of Steven Carrington on “Dynasty.” Carrington is notable for being one of the first openly homosexual characters on television. Corley was also a musician, and his single “Square Rooms” became a number one hit in France. Corley would go on to produce, working on various projects throughout the 1990s. Bigger than the Sky is his directorial debut.

    poignant and lucid, and tasteful, I loved this film! and I needed it at the time of its presentation. much character and humanistic sensitivity. I found myself on an emotional roller coaster a few times. this is a film I would recommend to anyone to see as means for them to get (or reach) back to basic feelings which we sometimes lose in the mundane grind. I like the theater arts used as a platform as an examination for our desires dressed in complexes in eccentric and multiplicitous layers. Thank you
