OkayBetterBest is performed by Jason Gotay (Bring It On: The Musical, Spider-Man Turn off the Dark), George Salazar (Godspell, Here Lies Love), Julia Mattison (Godspell), Elena Ricardo (Mamma Mia!), Christina Sajous (Holler If Ya Hear Me, American Idiot), Justin Matthew Sargent (Bonnie & Clyde, Rock of Ages) and Remy Zaken (Spring Awakening).

Here's how production notes describe the story: "Can revenge be acquired by jilted women - mercilessly seeking a patsy for one night? Trisha and her girlfriends are out on the prowl, rebounding from past heartbreak as a series of guys line up, eager to please. When Tricia’s plans to find Mr. Right Now don’t go as planned, the evening becomes a more personal battle of the sexes. OkayBetterBest is a new musical comedy that makes the most of a fun night out as a cast of seven is put to the test of love vs. lust."

The musical received a reading Dec. 3. Industry members interested in attending the Dec. 4 event at 3 PM should email OkayBetterBest@gmail.com. The Ars Nova Loft is located at 511 West 54th St.
