Jeff and Hunter, two self-confessed nobodies in New York, make a pact: They will write an original musical and submit it to a festival. The only catch? The deadline is in three weeks! They gather their friends, Susan and Heidi, and their trusted accompanist and set off. With the team assembled, Jeff and Hunter hit another roadblock-- what should they write about? Jeff and Hunter decide to follow the old saying, “write what you know,” and set off on a unique musical adventure: writing a musical about writing a musical. As the deadline looms, insecurities creep in and jealousies flare. Will the team succeed with their musical? Could it even win a Tony?! Frequently hilarious, occasionally heartbreaking, and thoroughly inspiring, [title of show] is a love story celebrating individuality and creativity.

“Mr. Bowen and Mr. Bell have turned themselves into well-drawn comic characters and shaped their struggles — and those of Ms. Blickenstaff and Ms. Blackwell — into a shaggy saga of youthful hopes frustrated, channeled and (hooray!) ultimately rewarded, as their doodle of a musical comes together.” -The New York Times
