In the play, directed by Gerald Gutierrez, Jennings (The Underpants) plays a fading matinee idol, while Skinner (The Full Monty) and Conway are a married couple. She's bold and brassy, he's a bit brutish.
A soapy comedy-drama (and later a famous M-G-M picture), George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber's Dinner at Eight tells overlapping stories of guests invited to and preparing for dinner at Millicent and Oliver Jordan's. She's neurotic, he's losing his fortune, and their daughter is having an affair with a depressed, faded matinee idol who is just a trigger pull away from oblivion.
