This Friday marks the premiere of Terrence McNally’s It’s Only a Play, a Pegasus Theater NJ production. 

As part of an initiative led by Pegasus Production Company director Mr. Marcos Orozco, It’s Only a Play continues the tradition of promoting the theatrical arts year-round at CBA by offering an alumni-driven production. Now in its second year, this summer initative allows students involved with Pegasus to work alongside production company alumni for a one-of-a-kind summer experience.

It’s Only a Play, revived on Broadway in 2014, revolves around the offstage drama that accompanies the premiere of The Golden Egg, a new play that brings egotistical actors, playwrights, and directors together for a night that exemplifies the saying “there’s no business like show business.” Dramatists Play Service, Inc. writes, “The wealthy producer Julia Budder is throwing a lavish party in her lavish Manhattan townhouse. Downstairs the celebrities are pouring in, but the real action is upstairs in the bedroom, where a group of insiders have staked themselves out to await the reviews, … [creating] a prime recipe for the narcissism, ambition, childishness, and just plain irrationality that infuse the theatre—and for comedy.

The work of a powerhouse cast and crew of CBA alumni on this hilarious production is not to be missed. It’s Only a Play opens on Friday, June 30 at 7 p.m. in the Henderson Theater and plays performances on Saturday, July 1 at 7 pm and Sunday, July 2 at 2 pm.
