A celebration of theatre at its best … and theatre people behaving their not-so-best.

It’s opening night of Peter Austin’s new play The Golden Egg, and he’s anxiously waiting to see if his show is a hit. With his career on the line, he shares his big First Night with his “best” friend, a television star, his novice producer, his doped-up diva, his genius director, a lethal drama critic and a fresh-off-the-bus coat check attendant on his first night in Manhattan.

It’s Only A Play, written by four-time Tony winner Terrence McNally, is a celebration of theatre at its best … and theatre people behaving their not-so-best.

It’s alternately raucous, ridiculous and tender – and proves that sometimes the biggest laughs happen offstage.

“Hilarious! The hottest ticket in town – and rightly so.” The Wall Street Journal

“Terrence McNally’s ‘It’s Only A Play’ is that rare comedy that’s as smart as it is funny.” Newsday
