Jan 18 - Feb 3

By Terrence McNally

 

Directed by Ted Desel

 

It’s the opening night of The Golden Egg on Broadway, and the wealthy producer Julia Budder is throwing a lavish party in her Manhattan townhouse. Downstairs the celebrities are pouring in, but the real action is upstairs in the bedroom, where a group of insiders have staked themselves out to await the reviews. The group includes the excitable playwright; the possibly unstable wunderkind director; the pill-popping leading lady, and the playwright’s best friend, for whom the play was written but who passed up this production for a television series. Add to this a drama critic who’s panned the playwright in the past and a new-in-town aspiring actor, and you have a prime recipe for the narcissism, ambition, childishness, and just plain irrationality that infuse the theatre. But don’t worry: This play is sure to be the hit they have all been hoping for.
