Join us at the Rio Theatre for a very special Master Class session with actor and best-selling author Greg Sestero.
Sestero first became known to audiences for his role as “Mark” in director Tommy Wiseau‘s pop-culture phenomenon THE ROOM – aka, ‘The Citizen Kane of Bad Movies’ – which endures as a modern day cult-classic. Following that experience, Greg Sestero authored his memoir, THE DISASTER ARTIST: MY LIFE INSIDE ‘THE ROOM’, THE GREATEST BAD MOVIE EVER MADE, which went on to become a world-wide bestseller, and eventually a Golden Globe-winning film directed by James Franco.
In the Master Class, Greg will lead and direct group script readings from THE ROOM and THE DISASTER ARTIST (this is your chance to live out your deep-held dream of re-enacting your favourite so-bad-it’s-good movie), discuss his experience, and give some amazing (and hilarious) insight into the monumentally awesome world of Tommy Wiseau’s THE ROOM.
Greg will also be available for meet n’ greets, a photo-op, and book signing.
Fun Fact: In 2014, while James Franco was in town shooting THE INTERVIEW, he came to the Rio Theatre for a screening of THE ROOM and a live reading from THE DISASTER ARTIST, hosted by Greg Sestero. Franco was so taken by Greg’s memoir and the rapturous response of the crowd, that they shook on the making of the feature that very night!
