This “backstage” comedy, by award-winning contemporary playwright Jane Martin, skewers the traditions and folklore of life behind the curtain in today’s American theatre and the pitfalls of staging the classics in community theatre—in Texas this time. Nothing is left unscathed including cross-gender casting, offstage romance, unsavory corporate sponsors, the local newspaper critic, and a myriad of eccentric directors and actors. Like Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters, our three leading ladies (the star struck ingénue, the jaded character actress, and the porn diva), are pursuing the true purpose of life—but their path is an hilarious one. If you believe man cannot live by bread alone…and prefer a little salsa with yours…and love the theatre….this madcap comedy is for you!
