Putting together a Broadway show is about more than just hard work. There is a lot that happens behind the scenes of a single production that can change people's lives forever. Julia and Tom want to write the best musical about Marilyn Monroe's life, but they must deal with problems in their friendship as well as Julia's infidelity in her marriage. Karen and Ivy are the two thespians vying for the title role. Karen is naive while Ivy is a manipulative veteran, and both will stop at nothing to get the coveted lead. Derek, the director, knows how to play the two women against each other as he tries to have relationships with both. Eileen is the producer who is going through her own bitter divorce and must keep all of the players in line so the show can go on.
