“The hottest ticket in town--and rightly so.” - The Wall Street Journal
“Deliriously dishy. It’s Only a Play is a hit!” - The New York Times
“Wickedly funny. You won’t want the night to end.” - Associated Press
This hilarious ensemble comes together in a comedy written by four-time Tony winner Terrence McNally and directed by three-time Tony winner Jack O’Brien—a celebration of theatre at its best...and theatre people behaving their not-so-best.
It’s opening night of Peter Austin’s new play as he anxiously awaits to see if his show is a hit. With his career on the line, he shares his big First Night with his “best” friend, a television star, his novice producer, his doped-up diva, his genius director, a lethal drama critic, and a fresh-off-the-bus coat check attendant on his first night in Manhattan.
It’s alternately raucous, ridiculous and tender—and proves that sometimes the biggest laughs happen offstage.
