Josh Hensley is directing this story of eager beaver producer Martin Klemmer, a wheeler dealer if ever there was one, who has uncovered a terrific commercial script – ‘Star Wars: The Play’. Since he has produced only one Off Broadway project, something called ‘Craps!’, Martin’s calls are not being returned by the powerful Broadway magnates capable of getting this play to the Great White Way. Martin needs names, names like film legends Sylvia Glenn and Leatrice Monsee, for the leads. If Martin can sign them he can get the money. Unfortunately, they hate each other. Will Martin be able to resolve this titanic dilemma? Will ‘Star Wars: The Play’ hit the big time? And, if Sylvia and Leatrice do agree to appear together, will Paul Newman sign on, too?
The cast features Thomas McKee as Martin Klemmer and Ray-Nata Powell as Aretha Thomas. Sylvia Glenn and Leatrice Monsee are played by Laura C. Cutler and Sue Goodner. Also in the cast is Tucker Souther.
