Meredith McDonough directs the four-actor musical that has a Tony Award-nominated book by Hunter Bell and a score by Jeff Bowen. The little-musical-that-could premiered Off-Broadway in 2006 and made the move uptown to Broadway's Lyceum Theatre for a brief run in 2008. A cast album preserves the score.

The cast includes Stern (By Jeeves, Little Shop of Horrors) as Hunter, Jordan (Cry-Baby, In My Life) as Susan, Alvin (Nine, Saturday Night Fever) as Heidi and Leonard (My Antonia) as Jeff.

Here's how TheatreWorks bills the production: "In a re-enactment of actual events, Bell and Bowen’s stage personas go from desperately seeking inspiration to realizing that their desperation is itself entertaining material. From showbiz in-jokes to off-hand anecdotes, everything is game in this completely original musical. With help from their fellow theatre geek friends Heidi and Susan, Hunter and Jeff invent a playlist of offbeat but utterly on-target tunes such as 'Awkward Photo Shoot,' 'What Kind of Girl Is She? and 'Die, Vampire, Die!'"

TheatreWorks' Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts is located at 500 Castro Street (at Mercy) in Mountain View, CA.
