Nicks, who is presently on a world tour with Fleetwood Mac, called this adventure "the greatest year of my life" and felt compelled to share the joyful experience that she terms "the day the circus came to town" with her fans. The album was written by Nicks and Stewart and produced by Stewart and Glen Ballard, the famed producer of Alanis Morissette's landmark album Jagged Little Pill. Ballard also appears in Stevie Nicks: In Your Dreams, along with Nicks' Fleetwood Mac band mates Lindsey Buckingham and Mick Fleetwood, and actress Reese Witherspoon.
Stevie Nicks: In Your Dreams premiered at The Landmark Theatre in Los Angeles on March 31, 2013, with Stevie Nicks introducing it and taking part in a Q&A. The film then had exclusive showings on April 2nd at theaters in more than 75 cities across the U.S. and Canada.
Virgil Films' Joe Amodei, who was recently named Film Festival Director of the music-focused CBGB Festival, said: "Stevie Nicks: In Your Dreams is that rarest of music documentaries, one that shows the artist actually in the process of creating new music as we watch and listen. To be working with a musical icon like Stevie Nicks is indeed a dream."
"Nicks is like a USB thumb drive in lace, a small package containing a variety of pop-culture personality tropes. She has been the regulator of weight; the titrator of substances; the veteran of a love triangle; the female artist who escaped the long shadow of a male collaborator; the commercial artist who passed through wildly different stations of commerce; and the canny performer whose utilitarian decisions and whimsical tastes became the totems and scripture of a tribe. She survived both the corrosive lift of cocaine and the lead apron of Klonopin." - The New Yorker
