My review of Nollywood Dreams is up.

In Nigeria there is an African movie industry that churns out more movies than either Hollywood or Bollywood. It is the setting for Nollywood Dreams (as in Nigerian hOOLYWOOD). This was the subject of a fast paced and funny show. My review is here. First few lines, below.

Nollywood Dreams Upends Expectations

Nollywood Dreams, at the MCC Theater, by Jocelyn Bioh, is an entirely different (highly entertaining) look at the “Hollywood” dream of millions. Set in “Nollywood”, the third of the major entertainment centers (after Hollywood and Bollywood), this based in Nigeria. But you don’t need to know any of this going in. The background is set quickly and simply, familiar to everyone who has consumed Hollywood stories. And the actors in this show are amazing. They bring an authentic and unique portrayal of the characters.
