This biting comedy tackles the insider world of big-budget Broadway productions, where talent is less important than buzz. Harry is an unknown but hard-working theatre actor, brought in to understudy for a handsome, charismatic movie star. Roxanne, the stage manager with secrets and dreams of her own, does her best to keep the actors on track, but the rehearsal veers nearly out of control between the actors’ bickering, the tricky set, and her own past with one of the actors.

Harry. 30s-40s. A talented working actor bitter about his lack of success.  Was engaged to Roxanne several years before the play takes place, but he left her a few weeks before their wedding.

Roxanne. 30s-40s. Stage manager who would rather be acting.  She is surprised and unhappy to be working with Harry.


Jake. Late 20s-30s. A young movie star trying to prove himself by working on Broadway.  He is handsome and confident.
