Mark Hagen
These were just some of the rave reviews that Terrence McNally received for his HIT Broadway comedy It's Only a Play in 2015. Now, this wild and scathing satire on the world of Show Business is having its Midwest Premiere at Off The Wall Theatre!
 
 
It's opening night of Peter Austin's new play, "The Golden Egg." Friends and foes gather at the cast party to await the first reviews. Among them are a television sitcom star, a drugged out former film star, an eccentric British Director, a somewhat air-headed if good willed producer, a vitriolic critic, and a very naive young actor who has come to New York to be a STAR! Oh yes, there is also a vicious dog! Insults are bandied back and forth like tennis lobs, and old old friendships crumble as new ones are created. Playwright Terrence McNally has never been more clever, cutting or creative. 
The Cast

The Off The Wall production, directed by Dale Gutzman featured some of Milwaukee's finest actors. Marilyn White, Laura Monagle, Randall Anderson, Patrick McCann, Jeremy C. Welter, Lawrence Lukasavage, and Mark Hagen as author Peter Austin, The ever reliable David Roper is the Technical Wizard for the show. 
 
 

 A raucous and wonderful way to end the most successful season yet of
Off The Wall Theatre
