A musical comedy about finding the strength and perseverence over tragedy to start anew

Book, Music & Lyrics by Michael Antin


Joanna, the star of the new musical, "Fast Cats", leaves the show to marry her fiance Marco. The taxi has a horrifc accident, throwing Joanna through the window, destroying her face, among other physical injuries. Marco dumps Joanna, returning to his italian home.

With the help of her mentor-voice teacher-best friend, Joey, Joanna emotionally and mentally recovers, while Doc repairs her face. Dr. Jake Kelly provides professional help while developing a relationship with Joey. Andre, the gofer for Gobi Richards, Joanna's theatrical agent, finally overcomes his shyness to proclaim his love to Joanna.
