Eugene Olivier is a “fairly successful” New York theater artist (at least in his own mind). Struck with an inspiration for the next great American musical, Eugene heads to LA to enlist his childhood friends to help him stage his most ambitious creation yet: a musical reimagining of “Othello,” framed through the story of the OJ Simpson trial, that features songs like “If the Glove Don’t Fit (You Must Acquit).” This outlandish mockumentary follows the trials and tribulations of the cast as they approach their opening night. A rare bit of modern satire that will make you laugh and cringe in equal measure. In Person: Director Jeff Rosenberg; actor Jordan Kenneth Kamp; actress Larisa Oleynik (Sun); producer Spencer Houck.
