Welcome to the Brooklyn Theatre on Broadway, for today’s auditions for the new musical, ‘Broadway Dreams’.We meet the theatre crew and the celebrity judges, including John Howard, whom everyone wants to impress, escorted by the ever-obliging “Gordon, the chauffeur”.
As the singers and dancers arrive for their auditions, we learn that one of them, Mike, has arrived in the hope of meeting Claire, a girl he’d idolised at College, but never had the courage to speak to before.
We watch the hopefuls gather in the green room, the backstage waiting area, where they prepare for their auditions in front of the judging panel. How will they perform when the spotlight is shone on them? Will they sparkle like the stars of tomorrow, or be sucked into the black hole of obscurity? Will Mike pluck up the courage to express his feelings?
Our finale is from the première of the new show, but which of the characters auditioning will make the grade and which ones will see their dreams remain just that – dreams?
