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.

Fabulously Fun Frolic
3 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film was a delightful surprise. I saw it at the Fort Myers Beach Festival, a small but sweet festival in Florida. The theater was full, and this film won the Audience Choice Award, while the lead actor (and writer) won the Best Actor Award. In both cases, well earned.

I left the theater eager to see the movie again. Rumor has it there will be sequels, and I hope that is true... so buy it now! I want to see the next ones!

It's a fun musical with a lot of light hearted comedy, a modicum of sexiness, an "only in America" twist of fate, and it just leaves you feeling great. . . like a musical should.
