Rate this:
Facing a career as cocktail waitress instead of on the stage, unemployed actress Betty Rose Milenski jumps at an internship at the country’s most famous summer stock playhouse, in spite of its bizarre, all-controlling reputation. There, she joins a family of eccentric and endearing fellow actors and bonafide stars, lorded over by the benevolent dictator Rex Terrell. With nonstop shows to sold-out crowds, the Gristmill Playhouse is every actor’s summer dream. But when a fellow intern mysteriously quits and warns her to flee, Betty Rose struggles to separate truth from make-believe even as she rises toward stardom. Is her growing terror and dementia a form of self-sabotage, or is the Gristmill grooming her for a final curtain call?
