Written by Hunter Bell with music and lyrics by Jeff Bowen, the Obie Award-winning, internationally acclaimed, one-act musical tributes famous musicals of Broadway’s past and the magic of collaboration and determination.

The pair enlist the help of their friends, Susan and Heidi, to make a musical with only four mismatched chairs, three weeks, two writers, one keyboard and a lot of creativity.
