Among the people she meets along the way is NEPA native John Pivovarnick.
John was awesome to stop by the Reference Department for a video interview (my first for the blog) about working on the film, working with Charlyne Yi, attending the Sundance Film Festival, and critics. John was genuinely one of the funniest and nicest people I've met. He even autographed my Blu Ray for me. Below is a video of our chat (Thanks to Sheli McHugh for filming and Elizabeth Davis for editing).
Paper Heart is available to borrow on DVD from the Lackawanna County Library System. To place a hold, click here. We also have a non-reservable copy of Paper Heart on Blu Ray.

Next Fall, which opened on March 11, 2010, is a new play written by actor Geoffrey Nauffts (Broadway's A Few Good Men) and produced by Elton John and David Furnish. It tells the humorous and touching story of a gay couple whose five-year relationship is put to the test when an accident changes both their lives and the lives of those around them.
At some point in the play, one of the characters describes another's appearance as "looking like a lesbian from Scranton."
Next Fall is currently playing as an open run at the Helen Hayes Theater on Broadway, which previously housed the hit musical Xanadu, which was written by Wilkes-Barre native Douglas Carter Beane.

Kudos to fellow tweeter Global Scranton for this reference.
