Singer, songwriter, actor, dancer, choreographer, playwright, costume designer, “Americal Idol” finalist and YouTube sensation Todrick Hall launches his most ambitious project yet: the full-scale original musical, “Straight Outta Oz.” From a small town in Texas to big-time show business, comes an inspiring documentary of grit, perseverance and the redemptive power of art. With a limited time and budget the odds are against him, but Todrick’s passion and his team of talented performers overcome all obstacles to bring this story to the world. From award-winning director, Katherine Fairfax Wright comes this excellent new documentary about the creative process of one insanely talented shining star.
Todrick Hall has become famous for his spin on classic flicks like Beauty and the Beast and The Wizard of Oz. Now the internet and Broadway star serves up his version of one of the biggest hits of 2017 so far, Get Out.
If you haven’t seen Get Out yet, do so. It’s an exhilarating mix of horror, suspense and comedy with some pointed social commentary that makes all of the over-the-top violence and gore go down a lot smoother. Seeing the original film will also help you appreciate this terrific parody.
In Todrick Hall’s version of the film – Get Out 2: Get Out of the Closet – Colleen Ballinger (aka: Miranda Sings) takes over the Alison Williams role, bringing home her new boyfriend to meet her parents, who in the original movie were played by Bradley Whitford and Catherine Keener. In this version her parents are a gay couple and they have thrown a pool party filled with twerking gay boys to welcome their girl’s new boy-toy. Enjoy!
