    Wow, brilliant final act, literally.

    Early joke "straight play" was lame but the CBD joke onwards were good

    Theater Camp is an amusing mockumentary about, well, a theater camp that faces being shuttered when its founder falls into a coma and her dumb son runs its already precarious finances into the ground. That's just the ground level premise, because the film features a bunch of side-stories, like the original show based on the founder's life (so musical fans will get their due), the two teachers connected at the hip wanting different things, the new teacher (Ayo Edebiri having an incredible year, release-wise) who doesn't know what she's doing, and even some key moments for the kids of various ages who attend the camp. All laced with a fun mocking tone that takes digs at "theater types" that, if you've ever been around amateur and professional theater people at all, are rather fair even within the comedy. It's what I call the Myth of the Artist - some people in the arts aren't so much artists as people who tap into the Bohemian ideal and see it as a lifestyle/attitude, but produce nothing. And they definitely deserve to be sent up. Theater Camp is funny, but it also has heart, so it's not a complete tear down either. 6 months 1 week ago
