In "It's Only a Play," 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 fledgling producer, his erratic leading lady, his wunderkind director, an infamous drama critic, and a wide-eyed coat check attendant on his first night in Manhattan.  It’s alternately raucous, ridiculous and tender — reminding audiences why there’s no business like show business. Thank God!


For The Record:
