WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Karen and Steve are glamorous movie stars with one thing in common: desperation. It's been years since either one's had a hit, but the latest movie by a hot shot European director could change that. The night before filming a big scene (that will undoubtedly assure them a spot back on the pop culture radar), Karen, her partner Bev, Steve, and his aspiring actress wife Missy meet in order to make an important decision: how far will they let themselves go to keep from slipping further down the Hollywood food chain?
The Money Shot reunites MCC Theater's Playwright-in-Residence Neil LaBute with director Terry Kinney (reasons to be pretty) for a hilarious and insightful comedy about ambition, art, status and sex in an era--and an industry--where very little is sacred and almost nothing is taboo.
