It's Only a Play: A hilarious comedy about theatre
Talent! Glamour! Ruthless ambition! Don't miss this hilarious send-up of show business and its often bizarre practitioners by Tony award-winning playwright Terrence McNally (Master Class, Kiss of the Spider Woman, Ragtime).
Plot: It's opening night of "The Golden Egg," the latest comedy by rising playwright Peter Austin, & his rich-but-inexperienced producer is throwing a star-studded celebration at her East Side brownstone. On hand are Peter's best friend (a wisecracking TV star), the play's flamboyant leading lady, a bratty British director, a pompous theater critic, and a starry-eyed coat check attendant who has just arrived in New York. These first-night partygoers keep crossing paths in the producer's sumptuous bedroom as they wait for the play's all-important reviews to come in.
The jokes fly fast and furious in playwright Terrence McNally's farcical valentine to people who make a living (or try to) in the theater. The action is light & lively, with one wildly comic sequence upon another. It is alternately raucous, ridiculous & tender. "These are among the funniest lines to roll off a stage in years!" - New York Times.
