"Sing Faster" is on YouTube, pretty amusing and some fantastic backstage views of the Met.

Sing Faster is great, but its San Francisco Opera, not the Met.

I stand corrected.  Still, very impressive.

Sing Faster is also available from Netflix...

We actually watched portions of "Sing Faster" in my SM class in college.  While the documentary portion was really great, and informational, I personally,  adored the sequence at the end with the time lapse of all performances/changeovers.

I ran across another one last night.  Old old old!  There was a 1945 movie called "The Phantom of 42nd Street."  Murders in a  theatre, newspaper theatre critic trying to solve them.  There's quite a few backstage scenes, including a couple chats with the stage manager and.... well I won't spoil the mystery.
Very interesting for a take on theatre in the 40s, anyway.

anybody remember All That?

The Stage Manager had quite  A LOT of screen time....at least 15 seconds every show.  And his lines usually consisted of a panicked, "FIVE minutes everyone!  You h ave to be onstage in FIVE minutes!" 

The cast would also play just too many jokes on him.  But all in good fun.
