1957. Rehearsals begin on what everyone hopes will be the Great White Way’s next big hit—a topical drama ripped from the headlines. But social norms and prejudices collide as the company of aspiring stars, hard-edged veterans and hopeful dreamers set out to make a play. At the heart of it all is Wiletta Mayer, a gifted African-American actress with the chance to finally play the lead role in a Broadway show, if she’s willing to compromise her principles. It’s a groundbreaking backstage satire of egos and attitudes and an insightful look at who we are and who we want to be.
