It’s the entertaining backstage story of two repertory actors, Robert (Lemmon) and John (Broderick), who share a love for the theater, a cramped dressing room and the unpredictable laughs that come with performing live every night. Robert never misses a beat as the old master of his craft - even while taking a cigarette break in his oversized bunny rabbit costume. Robert has taken the rising star, John, under his wing, and they peck away at each other with hilarious results. Even in the midst of onstage surgery, the feathers fly when neither actor can recall the details of their patient’s condition. There’s never a dull moment when the curtains rise for this wonderfully funny look at A LIFE IN THE THEATRE.
