About the show

This pop musical follows four ambitious go-getters in their quest for Hollywood success.  More…

When TV’s biggest showrunner announces a new deal with a major streaming subscription service, it sends her assistant Tara into a frenzy. Tara sees an opportunity to move off a desk and into a writer’s room while the other assistants look for their own ways to profit. Isaac, a talent agent’s assistant, wants to win a few new clients for his agency; Liz thinks she and her boss can be the leading ladies; and Nick, who assists his superstar producer father, needs to shift the media’s attention back to the release of his latest movie. Navigating the industry proves harder than expected for the assistants as secret alliances are made, trust is manipulated, and emotions get in the way of business.

Escapism, Long, Fluffy, Dated, Great singing

See it if you like stories of youthful ambition in entertainmt world. Actor, writer, agent, producer strive. Many songs! Melodies similar, lyrics meh.

Don't see it if you want important, insightful script. But strg performances (esply 2 gals). Room to cut; lags too often. Rich guy not believable. Gd band.

Quirky, Fluffy, Great singing, Slow, Entertaining

See it if you enjoy young talent working hard to deliver - all four have good voices, one has great comedic talent and the plot is clever.

Don't see it if you expect songs that will remain with you - most seem to have the same sound. Set is a bit amateurish and at 2 hours a few spots lag.

Slow, Fluffy, Entertaining, Great singing

See it if a goofy musical w/ tongue-in-cheek characters sung by talented young actors appeals. Sure to be charmed by this spunky, charming ensemble!

Don't see it if you need elaborate sets, less cliched story lines and lyrics, posher venue (tho the AC was great). May find scene transitions clunky & slow.

Some funny moments, Disappointing, Amateurish, Cliched, Generic music

See it if the singing/acting are not bad. The young and engaged cast is saving this otherwise non-memorable show. Several funny moments/lines.

Repetitive music, Funny, Cliched, Entertaining, Great singing

See it if Shabby space saved by 4 talented young actors (mostly nyc debut) ; great casting; covers lots of elements: love, competition, family..

Don't see it if One bulb burnt and created smoke but unplugged on time; no chemistry between the two “falling in love”; many stairs to basement toilet..

Also Provides some insights of the bottom of Hollywood food chain, but noth... Read more Read less

More songs than story, Fun lyrics, Entertaining, Funny, Great singing

See it if you like uncomplicated musical revues with a theme, despite a bare minimum of story. A fun, entertaining time with very good vocal talent.

Don't see it if you prefer a story you can sink you're teeth into, as this is more like a collection of songs with occasional dialogue between. Still fun.

Resonant, Entertaining, Ambitious

See it if you like musicals. The actors were great, well cast, especially Ben Diamond.
