Storyline

Like many his age, Stephen is a 14-year-old with a big dream -- to star on Broadway one day. Unfortunately, he is so shy, he is afraid to speak to others and when he does, he stutters uncontrollably. Still, he cannot turn his imagination off, picturing an intimidating New York City as an upbeat musical with singing cafeteria ladies and History tutors. But his mother is less than encouraging, pointing out that a career in musical theater is destined for failure. Will she ever understand that being creative is not something that can be compromised? And what will happen to Stephen if he forces himself to shut off his artistic nature? Written by Mark Oxman Productions

Trivia

All of the characters are named after Broadway talent - Stephen is named after Stephen Sondheim and Stephen Schwartz, as well as Steven Sater, a friend and mentor of Mark Oxman's. Anna Maria's name was inspired by Anna Maria Alberghetti after the director read a story about her stealing the portrait of a producer she hated from Sardi's restaurant. Ms. Kelly was named after Laura Michelle Kelly, whom Oxman had seen star in "Mary Poppins." Gavin was named after the two Berts from the show, Gavin Creel and Gavin Lee. Teal was named after Teal Wicks whom Oxman had seen play Elphaba in "Wicked"; Julianne was inspired by Julianne Moore who wrote "Freckleface Strawberry," a role Remy Zaken played when it moved off-Broadway. Cafeteria Lady and Homeless Guy were not given names since the film is told from Stephen's perspective and he does not know them out of context. See more »
