Hollywood has its own style of gift giving during the holiday season, offering up teasers and trailers for the coming year. It's almost like being visited by the Ghost of Cinema Yet to Come - minus the dusky shroud and spectral, outstretched hand.

The eager audiences, keen to get a glimpse at the forthcoming cavalcade of films, digest the previews jubilantly, hoping the promos don't reveal all the best bits of next year's potential blockbusters. All that excess Hollywood hype intensifies into a blaring buzz this time of year, compelling movie reviewers and entertainment bloggers to encapsulate the hysteria into bulleted lists for assimilation.

Eventually his obsession with his estranged wife Amanda is shattered, and he finds his way back to life. freeFall’s production will immerse the audience in the decadent club world of the 1980s Big Apple while Goodman’s tuneful, driving rock score envelopes you in the power of this contemporary literary milestone.
