IT'S ONLY A PLAY
by TERRENCE McNALLY
PATRIC McWILLIAMS & ROBERT BUSEICK
It’s the opening night of “The Golden Egg” on Broadway, and the
wealthy producer Julia Budder is throwing a lavish party in her
uber wealthy Manhattan townhouse. Downstairs the celebrities are
pouring in, but the real action is upstairs in the bedroom where
the cast and a number of their friends have staked themselves
out to await the reviews.
The group includes the excitable playwright, the possibly unstable
wunderkind director, the pill popping leading lady attempting
a “comeback,” and the playwright’s best friend for whom the play
was written but who passed it up to do a television series.
Add to this a drama critic who has panned the playwright in the
past and a new-in-town naïve singer and you have a prime recipe
for the hilarious narcissism, childishness and overwrought emotions
that had the New York Times calling the recent production “…side
IT’S ONLY A PLAY is a poison pen mash note to New York theatre,
at once gleefully cynical and humorously affectionate.
