This is a movie that was on TCM last year but for the life of me I can't remember the name. It's about an an actor with a giant ego playing in an outdoor summer stock theatre somewhere in the midwest. The plot is vaguely like "Enter Laughing" but that's not it. A local teenager is a theatre nut and gets a job as a stagehand hoping to land a role in a production. The star (who reminds me of Howard Keel but I don't think that's him) takes the kid under his wing while he waits for his big break, hoping an agent from New York will see him and sign him up. Meanwhile the stagehands play pranks on him like gluing a mug he's supposed to lift to the table. It was very funny - but what's it called? This is really vexing me. Thanks!
