It's Only a Play

Don't miss this hilarious send-up of show business and its often bizarre practitioners by Tony award-winning playwright Terrence McNally (Master Class, Kiss of the Spider Woman, Ragtime).

It's Only a Play uses the occasion of a disastrous Broadway opening night party to pile one wildly comic sequence upon another. It’s alternately raucous, ridiculous and tender. "These are among the funniest lines to roll off a stage in years!" - New York Times.

Plot:  It’s opening night of "The Golden Egg," the latest comedy by rising playwright Peter Austin, & his rich-but-inexperienced producer is throwing a star-studded celebration at her East Side brownstone. On hand are Peter’s best friend (a wisecracking TV star), the play’s flamboyant leading lady, a bratty British director, a pompous theater critic, and a starry-eyed coat check attendant who has just arrived in New York. These first-night partygoers keep crossing paths in the producer’s sumptuous bedroom as they wait for the play's all-important reviews to come in.

One-liners skewer everyone from Liza Minnelli & Lady Gaga to Harvey Fierstein & Daniel Radcliffe, along with almost every currently running hit show. It’s absolutely not necessary, however, to be a Broadway expert in order to enjoy It’s Only a Play. The jokes fly fast and furious in playwright Terrence McNally’s farcical valentine to people who make a living (or try to) in the theater.

Fear of Commitment

This workshop will up your commitment game in your scenes. The ability to “hit the gas” and commit to what’s going on in your scene is the skill that separates good improv from great improv. This workshop will use tons of scene work exercises and will focus on; identifying the choices we subconsciously make in improv, committing to your scenes even if you have no idea what’s going on, and finding new ways to heighten by recommitting to your choices. Oh yeah, and it will be a lot of fun!
