OPPA!'s production of It's Only a Play will open Friday, March 15th. In It's Only a Play, "it's opening night of Peter Austin's (Adam Livingston) new play as he anxiously awaits to see if his show is a hit. With his career on the line, he shares his big First Night with his best friend, a television star (Mitch Daley), his fledgling producer (Leslie Barrett), his erratic leading lady (Kristie Post Wallace), his wunderkind director (Adam Bone), an infamous drama critic (David Barrett), and a wide-eyed coat check attendant (Parker Thompson) on his first night in Manhattan. It's alternately raucous, ridiculous and tender — reminding audiences why there's no business like show business. Thank God!"
 
Under the direction of Heather Ann Jackson, the creative team at OPPA! has turned the Creator's Stage into a lavish Manhattan townhome, where a party for opening night takes place and “even the casts of Hamilton and The Lion King are there.”
 
“This show is written by one of the most famous playwrights Terrence McNally” says Heather Ann Jackson, Director of It's Only a Play. “So I wanted to approach it from a literary point of view.  Working with this amazing cast we were able to find the real moments in each of these characters.  The production team created a “real” place that gives us an amazing place to play and laugh.”
