It Must Be Him
The cast of It Must Be Him features 3-time Emmy® Award nominee Peter Scolari and Emmy® Award and Golden Globe® Award nominee Liz Torres, along with Patrick Cummings (Happiness), Tony® Award nominee Stephanie D'Abruzzo (Avenue Q), Harris Doran (Love Jerry), Ryan Duncan (Altar Boyz), John Treacy Egan (The Producers), Tony® Award nominee Jonathan C. Kaplan (Falsettos), David Margulies (45 Seconds From Broadway), Tony® Award nominee Alice Playten (Henry, Sweet Henry), Edward Staudenmayer (Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me) and Jessica Tyler Wright (Sweeney Todd).
In It Must Be Him, Louie Wexler (Scolari), a whiz kid comedy writer from the heyday of variety television, is now down on his luck. With his devoted agent (Egan), and his considerably less devoted housekeeper (Torres) by his side, Louie finds himself broke, lonely, and on the wrong side of middle age. Desperate to rekindle his fading career, save his posh Beverly Hills home and find the man of his dreams, Louie searches high and low for one last shot at his own real-life happy ending.

It's not shaping up to be a very promising season for alumni of The Carol Burnett Show. Just like the recently closed Viagra Falls, Kenny Solms' It Must Be Him offers a terrific company of comical pros working hard to inject any mirth possible into ninety minutes of tepid material.
