"It's Only A Play"
Written by Terrence McNally
Directed by Karen Anderson
A wealthy first-time Broadway producer, Julia Budder, is throwing an opening night party for "The Golden Egg" at her luxurious Manhattan home. The playwright, Peter Austin, is joined by the director, a lead actor, and assorted friends and hangers-on (including a critic) as they nervously wait for the late-night reviews printed in the newspapers. As they wait, they gossip and name-drop celebrities who are in attendance and chat about their respective theater experiences -- then, the reviews come in!
