In this one-setting farce, a Theater District steakhouse becomes the meeting place for a veritable who's who of Broadway has-beens, would-bes and hangers-on. Chief among them is veteran director Harris Chappell (Tambor), drumming up financing for his comeback. No stranger to satirical comedy, director Malcolm Mowbray (A Private Function) aims to create a mythical theater world of bons vivants and bottom-feeders, but despite some modern touches (electronic music, overtly gay themes), the film feels more stale than timeless. Ditto the movie's rapid-fire dialogue, a stream of self-conscious patter that largely misses its targets and repeatedly takes the zing out of Tambor's zesty line readings.
