THE SCREENING ROOM: "Revenue Stream" Web Series Parody Exposes "Real-Life" Sherie Rene Scott (Video)
18 Mar 2014
"Revenue Stream," a new web series in which a "disgruntled gofer exposes the real life revenue streams and schemes of a certain Broadway boss," has hit the web. Here is a look at the first episode.
The series stars Tony Award nominee Sherie Rene Scott, who has been seen on Broadway in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Everyday Rapture, The Who's Tommy, Grease, Rent, Aida, The Little Mermaid and Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown.
According to the series' website, "all footage [was] shot covertly while (in my boss's words) 'managing my screen addiction,' aka 'working'," and the series was created to "help finance her planned biopic of Rosemary Clooney."
"It has come to my attention some internet thing is going around that was maybe filmed without my knowledge," Scott said in a statement to Playbill.com. "I will be getting to the bottom of whatever this unauthorized web leak thing is. It is an outrage my privacy has been invaded, but don't worry — All Will Be Well."
Scott's upcoming album, "All Will Be Well," is available for pre-order by clicking here. For all other theatrical merchandise, visit the Playbill Store.
The first episode, entitled "Gay Weddings," shows Scott on the phone as she inquires about officiating gay weddings across New York City.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
