“Theater Camp” is currently one of the most popular movies on Hulu, according to the streaming service’s public ranking system.
This mockumentary-style comedy joined Hulu on Sept. 14 after a limited theatrical release in July. As the name suggests, “Theater Camp” is set at a run-down theater camp in upstate New York and focuses on the drama-loving staff who must work together to keep it afloat.
The impressive ensemble cast includes Ben Platt, Molly Gordon and Noah Galvin (who also co-wrote the screenplay with Nick Lieberman) ― as well as Jimmy Tatro, Patti Harrison, Ayo Edebiri, Amy Sedaris and more.
Currently, TV and film writers and actors ― including those who worked on “Theater Camp” ― are on strike over pay and working conditions in the streaming era.
Negotiations between the striking writers and Hollywood studios will reportedly resume next week. Until an agreement is reached, unionized crew members are at risk of not qualifying for health insurance, so celebrities are auctioning off time and memorabilia to help support them financially.
