There's nothing more exciting than the opening night of a hit Broadway musical, except maybe what happens getting there. While Wicked and The Lion King pack audiences in on the Great White Way, Julia and Tom, a successful songwriting team played by Debra Messing and Christian Borle, begin work on a new musical based on the life of Marilyn Monroe. When a tenacious producer (Anjelica Houston) jumps aboard, so begins the difficult task of casting the silver screen icon. Ivy Lynn, a tough Broadway veteran, seems like the obvious choice. But enter Karen Cartwright (Katharine McPhee), a young girl from Iowa with a dream of making it on Broadway who walks in and blows everyone away. So who will get the part and begin a journey that will change their lives? It's an age-old story, but a star just might be born once again. While everyone is consumed with putting the show together, real life has a tendency of getting in the way. Julia and her husband are in the middle of a complicated adoption; the producer's husband begins divorce proceedings which could threaten the finances of the show; and the brilliant but womanizing director could derail everything if he puts the young star in a compromising position. This will be a rollercoaster ride that culminates on opening night when the audience gets to determine whether or not the show is a smash! In the era of The Voice and Glee, executive producers Steven Spielberg and Craig Zadan & Neil Meron (producers of Chicago and Hairspray), and songwriters Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray), bring you the blood, sweat, and tears of the making of a Broadway musical.

Customer Reviews

Great Show!

This is a great show for everyone, especially theater lovers! The acting is phenomenal and the writing is smart. This has the potential to be a long running show.

McPhee steals the show!

This is an amazing pilot, all the actors are phenomenal. Haven't seen a show this good in years!! The music is first-rate, too. However, Katharine McPhee is the star of the show. So impressed by her, her voice is absolutely captivating and flawless, and her acting was surprisingly superb as well! Definitely Team Karen! Love everyone in the show though!


This show has the potential of being one of the best 'adult' shows of the new millennium! Great actors, great script, great music, well drawn characters, etc, etc. I love Katharine McPhee and hope this show will be the vehicle that vaults her into superstardom. This should be a perfect vehicle for her beauty and talent! My only question about the potential longevity of the show is whether it could be too highbrow for the typical american audience. I hope it will attract a large following of intellectual, college educated viewers. Wish there were some way of gaging how many people watch shows like this online like I do.
