Bigger than the Sky
Air Date: February 28, 2009
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.
