NICE SOLID MOVIE MUSICAL w/ Great Ensemble Cast!
17 December 2012 | by collin99See all my reviews

I saw "How Do You Write a Joe Shermann Song" in New York City on December 13th. I thought that Gary King successfully created a solid, moving film with some great standout performances from its ensemble cast. I imagine tackling a movie musical is a pretty tall order, but Gary's unique style allowed his actors to bring themselves to the role, allowing the scenes to breathe and take shape organically. The film is gritty and real, sort of in the way "Once" felt when I first saw it, and you find yourself really rooting for the main characters. Christina was very strong in the lead role, as was Mark DiConzo, a versatile actor who also choreographed some of the dance numbers. Both sustained strong performances throughout the whole movie, allowing the audience to really connect to their characters. I thought Christina did a nice job of capturing the chemistry between her character and Joe Shermann, played by Joe Shermann. Debbie Williams gave a convincing performance as Summer Roberson, and is a wonderful singer with a huge voice. I also loved a lot of the supporting characters, especially Daryl Ray Carliles as the minion assistant Danny Boy, who tries so hard to please his producer boss, and says so much without any dialogue. The interactions between him and Jenn Dees were pitch-perfect, and got huge laughs at the screening and left the audience wanting more. All in all a good solid film, and one a lot of people in the entertainment business will be able to relate to.
