Storyline

What's the craziest career choice anyone can make and spend over 60 years pursuing that path? Saratoga Ballantine and Dea Lawrence's documentary Troupers profiles actors over 80 in Hollywood giving new meaning to the phrase, "hang in there." Troupers takes a humorous look at how this fearless group survived parental disapproval, the black list, poverty, divorce, rejection, disappointment, depression, bad acting coaches, critics, nasty casting directors, and decades of auditions to do what they wanted to do: Act.

Great Showbiz stories
29 August 2013 | by arthur-224See all my reviews

If you love show business, you'll love TROUPERS. What a great collection of talented, colorful characters, each with vivid, sad, funny, inspiring stories about the power of perseverance in establishing and maintaining a performing career. The stories are organized thematically, which juxtaposes different views and experiences about getting started, auditioning, success, failure and reinventing oneself.

Most of the actors interviewed are recognizable, but even if you don't know their work, their stories and delivery are insightful and entertaining. Should be required viewing for anyone crazy and passionate enough to pursue a career on stage or on screen.
