About the Show
"A year in the life of a martyred musical theatre wannabe, Anita Boult."
Anita's just moved back home. Not to Mom and Dad's, you understand, just out of New York and back to Peekskill - and it's not an admission of defeat; just a strategy for recharging batteries and planning a new assault on Broadway.
Observe, then, as Anita seeks to effect her return to the bright lights, grappling with hostile agents, indifferent casting directors, doubting parents, demanding boyfriends, and worst of all, high school rivals still somehow hogging the local limelight.
Meantime, Anita will treat you to gems of known and lesser known songs from such American song writing legends as S. Barber & L. Bernstein. This show has "elements that remind us of Shirly Maclaine, Maureen Lipman and Barbara Streisand," as quoted by one viewer.
