Show time is 3 PM. Seeing Stars features music by Don Breithaupt, lyrics by Jeff Breithaupt and a book by Shelley McPherson. The musical, according to press notes, is described as such: "Eddie 'Bare Knuckles' McSorley and 'Gentleman' Joe Sullivan are two rival boxers in love with Jean, a feisty reporter, in this tough and tender original musical set in Hell's Kitchen in the '30s. Nothing is ever the same after Jean walks into a gym full of palookas and steps into the ring. If she can convince Gentleman Joe, who retired years ago, to fight Eddie, a seasoned champ, she can escape the house-and-garden beat. But when this triangle gets blindsided by love, all bets are off."
