The comedy, which concerns a high school production of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, was penned by Ryan Dixon, Nena Girsch and Jack Henry Robbins; the latter is also directing.
The motion picture, which will begin filming in Los Angeles this summer, follows "the on-stage disasters and off-stage drama of a group of students, their teacher and a visiting B-list TV star on the [play's] big night," according to Deadline.com.
Producers are Eric B. Fleischman and Girsch; Dixon is executive producer.
Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
