A stellar high school comedy with an A+ cast, a brilliant script loaded with witty dialogue, eye-catching cinematography, swift editing, and a danceable soundtrack.

It’s a dancing elephant of a movie. It has a few decent moves, but you’d never call it light on its feet.

Musical Planned on the Life of Roger Ebert

Chicago’s Black Ensemble Theater announced this week that they have been working on a musical inspired by the life of Roger Ebert called “The Black White Play (Honoring the Memory of Roger Ebert through Music),” as reported by Robert Feder.

“The Black White Play” has been written and directed by Jackie Taylor, founder and artistic director of the Black Ensemble Theater, and it will run from September 19 to November 1, 2015. The play has been partially funded by a bequest from the trust of Roger Ebert, and Chaz Ebert has been a longtime supporter of the non-profit organization.

In a statement from the theater, they said, “”The Black White Play” is a tribute to Roger Ebert where the music will speak to his philosophy of life.”

Stay tuned for more news on “The Black White Play” and the awards season trajectory of “Life Itself,” which was named the Best Documentary of the year this week by the National Board of Review and made the Oscar Shortlist for the Academy Award.
