Here's how the show is billed: "As Steven (McGrath), a failed Broadway chorus boy turned stay-at-home dad, celebrates yet another birthday, he finds himself filled with fear and uncertainty. Is Stephen (Gets), his partner of 16 years, cheating on him? Why is one of his best friends (Cantone) dying of cancer? And what, exactly, has he done with his life? A portrait of a group of longtime, theater-loving friends as they navigate the many facets of midlife and mortality."
