Frankie and Johnny Are Married Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Successful television director and film producer [[Performer~P107039~Michael Pressman~michaelpressman]] sets off with high hopes when he decides to helm a film production of Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune. He believes the experience of directing a film starring his struggling actress of a wife ([[Performer~P391363~Lisa Chess~lisachess]]) will be a fun and relatively easy way to revitalize their marriage. Unfortunately, the decision to cast [[Performer~P61530~Alan Rosenberg~alanrosenberg]] to play Johnny proves disastrous -- [[Performer~P61530~Rosenberg~alanrosenberg]] is incredibly difficult to work with and Pressman's already tense relationship becomes steadily worse as the horrific rehearsal and filming process intensifies. The situation looks bleak when, after a devastating preview, [[Performer~P107039~Pressman~michaelpressman]] is forced to shut down the play, relinquish his investment, and possibly lose his wife. Of course, the aggrieved director has one option: to take over the role of Johnny. The stakes have never been higher for the married couple, considering their future together appears to hinge on the final outcome of the film. Frankie and Johnny Are Married was directed in real life by the protagonist, [[Performer~P107039~Michael Pressman~michaelpressman]]. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi
