An outrageous comedy about the price of fame, the cost of things, and the oddest of odd jobs. A struggling actor takes a job working in the Malibu basement of a beloved megastar. One day, the Lady Herself comes downstairs to play. It feels like real bonding in the basement, but will their relationship ever make it upstairs? Coyote StageWorks is proud to be one of the first smaller theaters granted the rights to perform this play while it is still running in New York and on a national tour.
An award-winning, not-for-profit Actors’ Equity professional theater company dedicated to advancing theatre as a vital art form in the Coachella Valley, Coyote StageWorks was awarded twenty Desert Star Awards by the Desert Theatre League at its annual gala on October 5, 2014, and have twice been voted "Best Live Theater" by Desert Magazine in 2013 and 2014.
