Every small town has that one son who has made it big, and for Orrville, Ohio, that son is Eugene Olivier. From grade school pageants to high school plays and on to the bright lights of New York City, Eugene has made a name for himself in the world of theater. Literally, just for himself. OJ: The Musical follows Eugene as he recruits hometown friends and sets up funding for his musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Othello.” Whether he’s courting his high school sweetheart, showing up nude to rehearsals, or showering in his driveway, Eugene displays the one quality that everyone notices first: he’s insane. Now this one man’s madness is about to be another man’s musical — about O.J. Simpson’s murder trial. With a hilarious ensemble and pitch-perfect direction, OJ: The Musical is one comedy that’ll fit you like a glove. A bloody, bloody glove. –Cleveland International Film Festival
