Waiting for Guffman

1996 Rated R 1hr 24m

Community theater gets spit-roasted in this blistering mockumentary penned by (and starring) Christopher Guest, who plays the ultra-fey Corky St. Clair, a local theater impresario who takes his directing duties a little too close to heart. With Blaine, Mo.'s 150th anniversary looming, St. Clair mounts a mediocre musical tribute to the town. But his hopes of taking the production to Broadway hinge on the attendance of a very important guest.
