A Broadway Mockumentary!
Born into a pedigreed musical theater family, actress Astoria Bagg (Elisabeth Gray) finally gets her big break understudying the lead in Broadway's hotly-anticipated Twilight at Tiffany's. Between navigating the backstage dramas of a high-end Broadway production and the trauma wrought by a competitive, Tony-award-winning mother (Alison Fraser), Astoria seeks to find her place as an artist in the city of a thousand stages.
