It’s a tense opening night in the posh Manhattan apartment of wealthy Broadway producer Julia Budder. While the celebrity guests arrive downstairs, the hostess, playwright, director, lead actor, and friends gather upstairs and anxiously await the late-night reviews. The banter is hilarious as they boast about their theater experiences and engage in shameless, and often harsh, celebrity name dropping. The 2015 Broadway version starred Matthew Broderick, Nathan Lane, Megan Mullaly and Stockard Channing.
