Not quite "something for everyone"...
5 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

...unless you happen to be a gay, Jewish "actor" living in LA or NYC...then this is the series for YOU! If there were ever any doubt the "velvet mafia" exists, the fact this got "green lighted" with cameos from gay icons from TV and theater put that to rest. This series is very self-indulgent and clearly a demo reel for the Writer, director, star of the series as is so often the case. Unfortunately, said "demo reel" does not show a lot of versatility in acting (but plenty of close-ups and shirtless scenes as if that will make up for it). Frankly, this is just a bunch of David Schwimmers trying to convince us they are really hot and interesting instead of boring and homely. The writing is pretty much every cliché you can imagine on the subject of acting/theater (lots of drug references...because you know...acting) and of course the obligatory morality play of "lessons learned" at the end, make this as predictable as it is unremarkable.
