This uniquely profound new musical follows Leah, who’s about to close the curtain on her lifelong pursuit of musical theatre after a string of terrible auditions. Then she gets the call that a production needs two actors to step in and rehearse with Broadway megastars Dylan and Patrick, who are reprising their original roles in a staged reading of Leahs’ favorite musical, to be livestreamed on network television.
The line between reality and theatricality blurs in this real play about a fake musical, which explores why some feel compelled to turn their pain into poetry.

In this off-beat sci-fi comedy, Stephan, a depressed rock musician in his 40s, has hit a low point in his life and career. As he laments to his therapist about the poor choices of one specific night that he wishes he could change, she prescribes to him a new medication: time travel therapy. Allowing him to return to his past for 48 hours, Stephan goes back to that fateful night to try and right the wrongs of his life.
