Featuring Lauren LeBeouf, Ursula Anderman, Tim Peters & Larry Phillips
March 27 - April 5th
380 Broadway, New York, NY 10013
Stephanie Talbert’s days of being a powerful Hollywood Player are numbered. The last several TV Shows she’s developed have bombed; and the Network brass is questioning her ability to deliver ratings grabbing TV. Desperate for a hit, she and her Associate Producer turn to an unlikely source for inspiration.
Last Chance for Mama is an acidic comedy about the price you must pay to get and stay ahead in Hollywood.
