Opening Night: Come one, come all
The play opens with the opening night of a play. The audience hates it and it closes after the first performance. The producer, Max, was once the King of Broadway vows to return again.
The next day, an accountant with dreams of becoming a producer – Leo – comes to look over the books. While there, an “investor” comes to give Max money while Leo hides out in the bathroom. Leo has a very odd quirk: he has a blue blanket that he can not bear to leave or have anyone else touch. As Leo looks over the books, he has an idea: the IRS isn’t interested in plays that flop; they are only interested in the successes. Max likes the idea and convinces Leo that it is a brilliant plan. There are 5 steps:
- Find the worst play ever written
- Hire the worst director in town
- Raise two million dollars
- Hire the worst actors in town
- Close on Broadway and head out of the country
Leo refuses, but soon realizes he hates his job and leaves. The plan in underway.
