Storyline

WAITING IN THE WINGS: THE MUSICAL stars two entertainers, destined for the big time, who are mismatched in a casting office from two very different online contests. Tony (Adam Huss), a stripper from New York, is cast in an Off-Broadway musical and needs to trade in his tear-away trunks for tap shoes and tights. Anthony (Jeffrey A Johns), a naive musical theatre enthusiast from Montana, needs to decide if he can strip all the way down just to stay in town. Hilarity ensues as they realize that in order to "make it" they're going have to learn some new tricks. Shirley Jones, Sally Struthers, and Lee Meriwether round out this heartwarming homage to Broadway with some delightful cameos.

SOOOOOO Cute!!!
11 February 2018 | by drtoddsSee all my reviews

"Waiting in the Wings: The Musical" by Jeffrey Johns (2014) SOOOOO Cute!!! :) A cross between "Magic Mike" and "Camp' (or maybe "GLEE"). Anthony Richardson and Tony Richardson both enter online contests to perform in New York City -- one in an Off-Broadway Musical...the other in a Strip show. They both win, but in a "clerical error" they each get cast in the other's role! At first Anthony really grated on my nerves, but eventually I found myself cheering for him to succeed in his situation.....in life....and in love! If you like Broadway theater AT ALL you have got to see this one! Most of the musical numbers are parodies...many poking fun at "The Great White Way" with many hilarious jabs at famous shows. Good singing, good dancing, good romance, and good human values abound in this feel-good, whimsical film. Cameos by: Lee Meriwether; Shirley Jones; Sally Struthers; and Christopher Atkins.
