The year 1951.
The Place: La La Land
The motion picture business is everything in this town, and if you ain’t somebody, you’re nobody. In true LIT fashion, we throw you right in the mix. YOU’RE a company member at Summit Pictures, a film studio that’s gearing up for their latest blockbuster! But after clocking out today, the boss has a surprise for you… you ain’t going home.
One of your own, a talented screenwriter, ready to have his name in lights, was found dead at the foot of a bridge. It’s a scandal that could sink the studio, and put everyone working at Summit out of a job. You gotta get ahead of the press and the cops, and figure out how this guy went from the top of the world to the bottom of a river bed in the space of one night.
Our zoom theater becomes a movie theatre in this tragicomedy set in Hollywood’s Golden Age. Full of iconic figures from cinema history, this show offers a look at the grizzly visage hidden behind La La Land’s seductive facade, and pulls you through all the highs, lows, and in-betweens of the inglorious world of SHOWBIZ!
How far would you go to make it?
