Fourteen director chairs are lined across the stage. On one chair the letters clearly read STAR, but other chairs don't have such positive outcomes written on them: PORN STAR, CHORUS, HOUSEWIFE, ACCOUNTANT, NUN, etc.
At the top of the show a group of young people arrive in New York City to seek their fame and fortune on Broadway. Full of hopes and dreams they start their journey on the bumpy road to stardom, knowing what the audience knows as well - There is a director's chair for each of them. One by one they must accept their fates and take the chair that belongs to them leading them down their own unique paths to success or failure, and the many places in between.
