  • Set: Single set: the bedroom of a penthouse suite in a famous Hollywood hotel.

Hollywood's hiding a lot more in the closet than Tom Ford tuxedos, and megastar agent Jarrod Hilliard's determined to keep it that way. When the corpse of a male prostitute is found in his client's hotel room during the Golden Globe Awards, Hilliard and hotel manager Gage Holland are left to sweep things under the rug. Time to call in some favors... But when you work in the make-believe world of movies, everyone's acting, and nothing's what it seems in this jet-black comedy about what it means to be a "man" in Hollywood.

Published Reviews

"Wildly funny...carefully crafted to reveal surprise after surprise."

Christine Dolen, Miami Herald

"This is Michael McKeever...at his witty, cynical best. Laugh a minute? Oh, yes, and then some."

Roger Martin, miamiartzine.com

"Chock full of Hollywood insider wit... The action slows only when paroxysms of laughter would have drowned out the next line. [...] While McKeever's words reflect a pop-savvy understanding of today's Hollywood, the rest of the show suggests the madcap spirit of yesteryear."

John Thomason,Miami New Times

"4.5 STARS - Sometimes I stopped breathing, I was laughing so hard."

Hope Baugh, Nuvo

"The droll humor grows out of social observation... Simply one of the funniest offerings all season."

Bill Hirschman, Florida Theater On Stage
