Storyline

WAITING IN THE WINGS: THE MUSICAL stars two entertainers, destined for the big time, who are mismatched in a casting office from two very different online contests. Tony (Adam Huss), a stripper from New York, is cast in an Off-Broadway musical and needs to trade in his tear-away trunks for tap shoes and tights. Anthony (Jeffrey A Johns), a naive musical theatre enthusiast from Montana, needs to decide if he can strip all the way down just to stay in town. Hilarity ensues as they realize that in order to "make it" they're going have to learn some new tricks. Shirley Jones, Sally Struthers, and Lee Meriwether round out this heartwarming homage to Broadway with some delightful cameos.

Adorable!
23 May 2016 | by michellelookadooSee all my reviews

What a breath of fresh air in the form of musical theatre joy! This is truly a film that will make everyone smile, laugh, and sing along! I loved the cast - what a great smattering of fun familiar faces! I love the music - new songs with catchy melodies. This film has heart, intelligence, and wit and I will keep it in the list of films that make me happy to watch again and again. Rena Strober is a diva force to be reckoned with that has a voice like butter and all the saucy with that a diva like her should have! Jeffrey Johns is absolutely adorable and believable throughout the film - you want to cheer for him forever! If you love musical theatre, you love dancing, you love divas, you love scantily clad men, or you love a heartfelt and joyous time, definitely watch this film!
