The Fabulous Allan Carr
NCGLFF presents


For Everyone
He took a bite out of Hollywood. Hollywood bit back.

With a career spanning three decades, Allan Carr was a one-of-a-kind Hollywood power player. An ambitious and innovative producer, manager, party planner, and marketer, Carr built his grandiose reputation with a calculated flair for the hustle that earned him a fortune from the 1978 mega-hit musical Grease and the 1983 Broadway smash La Cage aux Folles. Born in 1937, Carr was seduced by Hollywood and dreamed of reaching its upper echelon. He helped launch the careers of Olivia Newton-John and Michelle Pfeiffer. Carr’s most spectacular film debacle was the 1980 homoerotic disco camp-fest Can’t Stop the Music, starring Caitlyn Jenner, Valerie Perrine, and the Village People. Director Jeffrey Schwarz (I Am Divine, Tab Hunter Confidential) is the perfect choice to immortalize Carr’s flamboyant, fairytale life. He’s gathered warm and witty remembrances from many of Carr’s friends and colleagues, including Bruce Vilanch, Lorna Luft, Marlo Thomas, and Steve Guttenberg.
