One laugh after another.
11 February 2007 | by Marnvote1See all my reviews

I happened to see this show in 1984, I was laughing so hard my sides and stomach ached. Tears were running down my cheeks.

The next time it was on TV I was prepared with a tape to record it. My children knew that under no circumstances should they touch that tape.

Being active in theater I could not only see but empathize with the cast and the problems that arose. I was sure the cast had gotten together one night and remembered embarrassing and heart stopping moments in shows they did. I think they put them all together and Footlight Frenzy was born.

Imagine my dismay and heart break to find that one of my children's friend wanted to tape something and carelessly taped over it. I have been trying since 1984 to find another copy. This is the first I have seen one. I do hope this will be available for sale. I would buy two, one extra just to be on the safe side.

Can't go wrong with this tape if you are looking for laughs a minute and amazing staging. Remembering some scenes still make me smile. What a pick me up.
