The best laid plans go awry when the cast and crew of a Broadway-bound play resort to manipulation, diva-like behavior, and chaotic abandon to get what they want. Fledgling playwright Jerry Przpezniak and his fiancé are a couple of Buffalo greenhorns suddenly swept up in the whirlwind of New York’s theater scene when Jerry’s play is optioned for the big money, ego-driven world of Broadway.
It’s a young playwright’s dream, or is it his nightmare? Everyone involved knows exactly what the play needs in order to make it a hit. The lead actor wants his lines rewritten. The lead actress would be more comfortable with more jokes, and maybe a song. If only Jerry had listened when the director said, “don’t talk to the actors”!
