OVERVIEW

Description

Fifteen director chairs are lined across the stage. On one chair the letters clearly read STAR, but other chairs don't have such positive outcomes written on them: PORN STAR,CHORUS, HOUSEWIFE, ACCOUNTANT, NUN, etc.

A group of young people arrive in New York City to seek their fame and fortune on Broadway. Full of hopes and dreams they start their journey on the bumpy road to stardom, knowing what the audience knows as well: there is a director's chair for each of them.

One by one they must accept their fates and take the chair that belongs to them.This touching, hilarious and at times gritty show follows them on their paths to success or failure, and the many places in between.
