OPENING OFF-BROADWAY IN 2020
Opening Night: January 9, 2020 at the Players Theatre.
This new musical comedy, by New York Emmy winner Jacklyn Thrapp, explores the behind-the-scenes culture of broadcast news. It’s inspired by real people!
Witness the wacky journey of a last place morning news team to see why we work jobs we hate - and what will it take to quit.
Journalists from MSNBC, FOX NEWS, The DAILY NEWS, PIX 11, CBS NEW YORK and more are giving it rave reviews after attending a limited engagement at the People’s Improv Theater in the summer of 2018. Off-Broadway is next!
