This is It’s Only A Play:

It’s the opening night of The Golden Egg on Broadway, and the wealthy producer is throwing a lavish party in her Manhattan townhouse. Downstairs, celebrities are pouring in, but the real action is upstairs where a group of insiders have staked themselves out, waiting for the reviews to come in. Included are the excitable young author; the brilliant, unstable director; the pill-popping leading lady; and the playwright’s best friend, an egotistical but insecure comic actor who passed up a chance to star in the play for a television series – which has since been canceled. As euphoria slides into despair, the narcissism, ambition, childishness, and just plain irrationality that infuse the theatre and its denizens take over. As the curtain falls plans are eagerly afoot for their next venture – this one sure to be the hit they have all been hoping for.
