'SO YA WANNA BE A BROADWAY STAR?' is an awesomely awkward comedic satire that follows Micki Manuel Minnelli ( Jamison Daniels), an overnight YouTube Celebrity searching for Broadway stardom wherever he can find it. A German documentary team follows him around on his daily journey with his fan-girl/make-up artist Sandy ( Patricia McCarthy) forever by his side. Will Micki become famous or infamous - and does he even know the difference?

Check out Episode 4 (Liza's But a Dream), featuring Broadway's Christine Dwyer, below! Liza Minnelli thinks Micki is fat. That's all the inspiration a boy needs. Getting down to his goal weight will take more than Angela Lansbury's Positive Moves. Maybe Micki will have more luck pounding the pavement while attempting to "accidentally" bump into his favorite Broadway stars?

The series comes from creator Jamison Daniels, who stars in the project alongside co-producer/co-writer/co-star Patricia McCarthy. Featured in the main cast are: Kyle Brand,Olithea Anglin, Bethany Lauren James, Rebecca Spigelman and more. In addition, expect some special guest stars, including Broadway notables Christine Dwyer (Wicked), Capathia Jenkins(Newsies, Caroline or Change) and writer/actress Mara Wilson, best known as the young breakout star in Matilda, Mrs. Doubtfire and Miracle on 34th Street.

The talent extends behind the camera, enlisting Director Blayze Teicher (Abstract Poverty, Tough Love); actress Blaire Wendel (Abstract Poverty, Tough Love) as Line Producer; writer/filmmaker Weston Daniels (Alone) as co-writer; 2014 ASCAP Foundation's Lucille andJack Yellen Award winning Composer Alexander Sage Oyen (Outlaws); and actress-comedian Carlie Craig to edit the project. Also on board, the musical theatre songwriting duo Joe Kinosian& Kellen Blair who have written a number featured in the series.
