Previews began January 2, 2010 with an Opening Night, January 21, 2010 and BroadwayWorld.com was there to capture opening night!
The production will be a limited engagement.
The play is described as "At the center of his own universe sits matinee idol Garry Essendine (Victor Garber). While Garry struggles to plan his upcoming trip to Africa, his elegant London flat is invaded by a love struck ingenue, an adulterous producer and a married seductress, not to mention Garry's estranged wife and a crazed young playwright. Just before Garry escapes, the full extent of his misdemeanors is discovered and all hell breaks loose."
