A fantastic capture of a beautiful piece of theatre. French Stewart is perfect as Buster. The show chronicles Keaton’s life and career through good times and bad, seamlessly flipping back and forth between the hysterical and the emotional.
The first two minutes are a bit shaky with some quick dropouts, but the show is perfectly captured after that with no blackouts, no obstruction, and no washout. The sound is a bit quiet in places, but everything is listenable. It’s filmed in 16:9 with a mix of wides, mediums, and close-ups. Includes curtain call and playbill scans.
