Broadway favorites Taye Diggs and Lesli Margherita are among the stars of director Isaac Rentz's new film, "Opening Night," which premieres June 3rd and 6th at this year's L.A. Film Festival.

The wild clip below features Margherita strutting her stuff to The Waitresses' 1982 hit "I Know What Boys Like," followed by Diggs' rendition of Bloodhound Gang's 1999 number "The Bad Touch."

"Backstage at a new Broadway show featuring the best one-hit wonders you ever forgot the band name for," says the film's promotional page, "production manager Nick circles non-stop like a shark, putting out countless fires involving feuding actors, flirtatious dancers and a gonzo band member with a jones for a buzz. Vibrant onstage musical numbers with legitimately impressive singing and staging are cut together with snarky exchanges, sexual bets, inside jokes, broken hearts and a glorious multi-layered NSYNC riff to brighten the darkest of spirits."

Written by Gerry De Leon and Gregory Lisi, "Opening Night" also stars Topher Grace, Lauren Lankus, Alona Tal, Anne Heche, JC Chasez, Rob Riggle, Paul Scheer and Brian Husky.
