It's opening night for a play on Broadway and those involved are waiting for the reviews to come out. The main characters are in an upstairs bedroom, but a big party is going on downstairs. Actors, writer, producer, critic, etc. come in and out of the bedroom at various times. They speculate and hear rumors about the upcoming reviews and in their conversations we learn about their pasts in the theatre and about some of their conflicts. A bad review jolts them for a while but gives them an idea for the next show. This is an engaging play with very funny moments.
