Behind the Curtain: Todrick Hall

Recommended

Face the Music | 2017 | 100 minutes

Stranger Says:

The dancer, YouTube sensation, and RuPaul’s Drag Race judge Todrick Hall was heading out on tour to meet his fans when he decided to write an all-new stage show called Straight Outta Oz. Because most of his fans knew him through YouTube, and because he wanted his fans to know the material when they got to his shows, Hall had just two weeks to make and distribute 16 elaborate new music videos. This documentary charts the breakneck pace of his creative output and the story of Hall’s life, from growing up black and gay in a religious family in Texas to his star turn on Broadway. Essential to his success: a loving mom who drove him to dance classes an hour and a half each way, six days a week, when he was little. (CHRISTOPHER FRIZZELLE)
