Accent On Youth - 2009 - Broadway History , Info & More

David Hyde Pierce heads the cast in this rollicking salute to love's possibilities, both on stage and off. Successful playwright Stephen Gaye (Pierce) is about to abandon his latest script, when his young secretary offers him new inspiration. With her as his muse, he stages the show on Broadway, only to learn, to his dismay, that the show's young leading man is being inspired by her too. In this fresh look at Samson Raphaelson’s brilliantly clever comedy, the Tony Award-winning actor of Curtains and Monty Python’s Spamalot returns to MTC under the direction of Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan (MTC’s Proof and Rabbit Hole).
