This hilarious spoof of live theatre and its often-bizarre practitioners has one wildly funny comic sequence after another. It's the opening night of "The Golden Egg" on Broadway, and the wealthy producer, Julia Budder, is throwing a party in her Manhattan townhouse. Downstairs the celebrities are pouring in, but the real action is upstairs where a group of insiders have staked themselves out in the producer's bedroom, waiting for the reviews.

Included are the excitable author; the brilliant but unstable director; the pill-popping leading lady; and the playwright's best friend, an egotistical but insecure comic actor who passed up a chance to star in the play for a television series—which has since been cancelled. Also present are a fawning, hypocritical drama critic; a would-be singer working as a part-time servant; and a hard-boiled lady taxi driver who has seen it all.

The pleasant manner with which the evening begins grows steadily grouchier—and funnier—as the reviews (all bad) come in. Those assembled seek desperately to pin the blame on each other. But, as euphoria slides into despair, the narcissism, ambition, childishness and just plain irrationality, which infuse the theatre and its denizens, take over.
