WAITING IN THE WINGS: THE MUSICAL
STILL WAITING IN THE WINGS
Anthony is a young, optimistic and overtly naïve musical theatre performer living in Big Timber, Montana with big Broadway dreams. Tony, on the other hand, is an extremely attractive and more than somewhat cocky stripper making the big bucks in the Big Apple. Anthony envisions his big break when he enters a contest to be in an Off-Broadway production in New York City. Tony sees “$” signs when he finds a competition entitled, “America’s Strip Search!” Thanks to these contests being held by the same production company, and our leading men having the same name, an unexpected case of mistaken identity explodes. Horizons are broadened, lives are changed forever, and hilarity ensues.
Still Waiting In The Wings follows the trials and triumphs of actors waiting tables in Times Square. While dreaming of the Broadway stage, the reality of slinging hash under florescent lights mixes sweet aspirations with bitter drama. There's no people like show people and there's no telling what can happen when they're pitted against each other. Nick Adams, Ed Asner, Carole Cook, Lee Meriwether, Patricia Richardson, Chita Rivera, Seth Rudetsky, Sally Struthers, Bruce Vilanch, and Cindy Williams round out this heartwarming homage to Broadway with some delightful cameos.
