Synopsis

 

It’s opening night of Peter Austin’s new play and the show takes place in the Opening Night after-party at first time producer Julia Budder’s fantastic Manhattan townhouse as famous guests come and go and the cast and team anxiously await the first reviews. With his career on the line, the playwright Peter hides in the bedroom with his best friend a television star, his novice producer, his doped-up diva, his genius British director, a lethal drama critic, and a fresh-off-the-bus coat check attendant. It’s alternately raucous, ridiculous —and proves that sometimes the biggest laughs happen offstage. The play is meant to be extremely current as well as self-referential about current Broadway shows and performers.
