In The Wings is a comedy written by Tony Award winner Stewart F. Lane. It was produced off-broadway at the Promenade Theater in New York city in 2005. Because the play is set in New York city in 1977, the costumes and sets become secondary characters. The off-broadway production included lots of bell bottoms, fringed vests and smiley faces. The play was first presented as a staged reading at The Revelation Theater starring Shannon Doherty and directed by Mr. Lane.

Plot synopsis[edit]

Two aspiring young actors, Melinda and Steve, in love with each other and the theatre get their big break when they are cast in a new musical by their Svengali-like acting teacher, Bernardo. But when the show moves to Broadway, only Melinda is asked to move with it. Their relationship is tested as well as their acting, singing and dancing skills. Steve’s mother makes frequent visits to the couple’s apartment with advice and money.
