“Garishly colorful, packed with stars, legendary parties, and a wide streak of pathos, it’s a singular life story entertainingly recounted in The Fabulous Allan Carr.” Variety
Growing up gay in America’s repressive 1940s, Allan Carr (born Solomon) was obsessed with Hollywood films – especially musicals – and the star system, which provided him with a much-needed sense of escapism. Years later, he made his mark as a Hollywood and Broadway producer, responsible for mega hits like Grease and La Cage Aux Folles as well as some of the wildest parties in Hollywood history. This captivating documentary is the ultimate tribute to the caftan-clad legendary producer and (almost) as fun as Grease.
