When a hugely bankable star agrees to appear in a sure-fire commercial hit, film producers Bobby Gould and Charlie Fox are convinced this is the break of a lifetime. That is until Karen, a temporary secretary, derails the dream. When she persuades Bobby to dump the blockbuster in favour of a story which can only be described as box-office poison, Charlie is forced to resort to desperate measures….
Film actress Lindsay Lohan will be making her stage debut as 'Karen', a part which was originally played in New York in 1988 by Madonna. She started her film career as a child star in movies such Disney's The Parent Trap. Her adult credits include Mean Girls, Robert Altman's A Prairie Home Companion and Emilio Estevez's Bobby. She has appeared in the TV series Ugly Betty and starred as Elizabeth Taylor in the biographical TV film Liz & Dick.
