Set in the townhome of a Broadway producer, we meet the team behind The Golden Egg as the opening night reviews are awaited. There's the producer herself, the terrified playwright, his best friend, the has-been female lead, the British director,, and a theater critic (wait, why is he there?). Filled with one-liners about the entertainment world that will make you laugh and cringe, this show will remind you that there truly is no business like show business!
