City Theatre is thrilled to present the hit stage comedy.

New York City, and it’s opening night of Peter Austin’s new play as he anxiously
awaits to see if his Broadway show will be a hit.  With his career on the line, he
shares this anxious - but oh so very exciting - evening with his Hollywood star
best friend, his fledgling producer, his erratic leading lady, his wunderkind
director, an infamous drama critic, and a wide-eyed actor, turned coat-check
attendant, on his first night in Manhattan hoping to find his big break.  Terrence
McNally’s hit stage comedy is wild, raucous, ridiculous, tender
— reminding us why “there’s no business like show business.”

“This show is without a doubt hilariously, sidesplittingly funny…
IT’S ONLY A PLAY deserves only a rave.” —NY Times

“At the heart of the humor is the sublime narcissism that
nothing matters except the theater.” —Variety

“This is the sort of comedy that puts the broad
in Broadway…” —Entertainment Weekly

Featuring Rick Smith, Scot Friedman, Christina Little Manley
Tracy Hurd, Michael Rodriguez, Craig Kanne, and Buddy Novak.

Directed by Artistic Director Andy Berkovsky
