It was a stunning performance!

This perfectly written script endowed with an all-star female cast and cute little “devil” of a casting assistant, Meet and Greet is proof positive that comedy can be dryly hilarious and insanely over the top with no danger to the experience.

Currently up for a Top of Fringe (Best Overall) award, there is no doubt that this show is one of the most deserving of attention at the Hollywood Fringe this year.

Writers Stan Zimmerman (The Golden Girls, Roseanne, The Gilmore Girls and The Brady Bunch) and Christian McLaughlin (Married with Children, Desperate Housewives) took the season to a new level of distinction with this offering harnessing the power of experience, good taste, timing and bullet-proof talent.

Four leading ladies of scripted television, reality and stage (in real life and in the play — [ Desiree: Daniele Gaither (Mad TV) Teri: Teresa Ganzel (Tonight Show & Toy Story) Margo: Carolyn Hennesy (General Hospital, Cougar Town, True Blood) Belinda: Vicki Lewis (Newsradio)] are gathered together to audition for a new hit show with a juicy, guaranteed to re-launch a career role. All of them think they have been singled out for greatness until they find out the truth, the part is up for grabs.  The in-fighting begins as each relentlessly and ruthlessly attempt to stand out for the casting directors’ attention.  All the while being subjected to the mood swings of a catty, young gay casting assistant [Paul Iacono (GBF, Hard Times of RJ Berger) ] who lionizes them and then rips them to shreds.

It’s Hell…except they don’t know it…

A must see show.
