Did You Know?


This episode's Broadway critic is named Micheal DeWitt, a not so subtle nod to a character from "All About Eve (1950)": AAE's Addison DeWitt was a scathing and unforgettable character who was also a formidable Broadway critic. "All About Eve" is also mentioned by an understudy early in the episode. See more »


Robert Goren: [coming close] Come on, Evan. It was a barn burner of a disaster, right? A catastrophe, a money-sucking catastrophe. I think... A career-ender.
Evan Korman: How dare you?
Robert Goren: [ponting to a portrait on the wall] You know, it must have been tough, your father looking over your shoulders every day. And now he's looking down on you from the great white way in the sky, and he's thinking, "I fathered... an entitled embarrassment."
Evan Korman: All productions have problems.
Alexandra Eames: [sarcastic] Not front-page headlines in the Daily News ...

You're the laughingstock of Broadway
17 October 2017 | by CeccacciPaolo1977See all my reviews

A young actor was ready to perform "Icarus" on stage in a Broadway musical. He was a low profile sit-com actor and that was his chance of the lifetime. Unfortunately, something went wrong, the rigging where he was hung collapsed and he crashed into the ground, dying as a result before the stunned audience. The victim was not so beloved by co- workers: the producer and the alcoholic director (drunk even at farewell speech) are afraid of a failure that can lead them on a downward spiral. Even the coach and once in a while lover becomes a suspect, so as the more qualified actor who would take his place and the easy-to-bribe laborer in charge of the rigging. When an insurance comes up, detectives manage to connect the dots.

The dumb assistant (Michael Panes) is the classic person you can't trust, he can change side every time he has a chance. He's even a touchy person, as we can see at the end of episode.
