Description: A romantic comedy about Michael Pressman, a successful television director/producer and Lisa Chess, a talented struggling actress, who are married and decide to mount a production in Los Angeles of "Frankie and Johnny in the Clare de Lune," in equity-waiver, with the hopes of bringing some life and joy back into their marriage. They bring in Alan Rosenberg to play Johnny and Lisa plays Frankie and Michael directs. What starts off as a simple idea to revitalize the marriage turns into an utter nightmare. Alan becomes insanely difficult and the marriage becomes even more strained as the rehearsal process becomes tense and explosive. It reaches a point where after a devastatingly disastrous preview, Michael shuts the play down and loses his whole investment, and possibly his marriage. His only choice is to take over the role of Johnny himself and fire Alan Rosenberg. Now the stakes are truly high as to whether or not this couple can pull it off.
