In the bohemian decadence of this cabaret, not everyone is who they appear to be under the spotlight. Discover what happens when jealousy, infatuation, and mistaken identities cross paths in the last hour before the curtain goes up. Will anyone make it out with their hearts and dignity intact?
As they navigate the everyday dramas of working in the theatre, complications of the heart rise to the surface. As the pressure mounts leading up to their curtain call, jealousies and heartache rise to the surface, threatening the whole company and the success of the performance.
