[title of show] is a musical about the making of an original musical which takes a comical look at the pleasures and perils of the artistic process as two struggling writers and two struggling actresses take on the seemingly impossible task of creating a new musical about creating a new musical. Previous incarnations of “[title of show]” dealt with the creation of a theatre festival entry, then an Off-B’way production...but now, with B’way as their destination, the quartet's saga continues anew as they face mounting pressures and deadlines, and are nearly thrown off-track by disagreements, day jobs and insecurities.

For The Record:

[title of show] debuted in 2004 at the New York Musical Theatre Festival, followed by an Off-B’way run at the Vineyard Theatre in 2006, with the same cast and director.
