For the cast and crew involved, the moments after a Broadway show premieres must be nerve-racking as they await reviews and audience reception. Terrence McNally's "It's Only a Play" drops the audience into a party hosted by a wealthy producer following the opening night of "The Golden Egg" on Broadway. While celebrity guests are mingling, a group of people directly involved with the show — the nervous playwright; the playwright's best friend; the drugged-up leading lady; and the young, unstable director — along with an anxious theater critic and a coat-checker with aspirations to sing, are waiting for the reaction. Presented by RAPA and OFC Creations, "It's Only a Play" is directed by Eric Vaughn Johnson and stars Diane Chevron, Billy Demetsenaere, Wayne Dunbar, Dresden Engle, Ken Harrington, Alec Powell, and Roy Wise.
"It's Only a Play" continues Friday, April 8, through Sunday, April 10, at Kodak Center's Studio Theatre, 200 West Ridge Road. 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday; 2 p.m. on Sunday. $17-$20. kodakcenter.org.
