Former "Cheers" star Alley executive produces the comedy and plays Broadway actress Madison “Maddie” Banks. the The cast also features Rhea Perlman (“Cheers”), Michael Richards (“Seinfeld”) and Eric Petersen (Shrek: The Musical).
Broadway favorite Chenoweth will be seen as Britney Gold, "Maddie's conniving understudy who will do anything - or anyone - to get onstage," according to press notes. "When Maddie finally offers her the opportunity, in exchange for an unseemly favor, Britney doesn’t give it a second thought."
"Kirstie," according to production notes, is described as such: "Maddie (Kirstie Alley) finds her life turned upside down when Arlo (Eric Petersen), the son she gave up at birth, suddenly appears, hoping to connect after his adoptive parents have died. However, Maddie doesn’t exactly see nerdy and schlubby Arlo fitting in with her luxurious lifestyle. But when Maddie’s assistant and best friend, Thelma (Rhea Perlman), and outlandish driver Frank (Michael Richards) encourage her to give Arlo a chance, Maddie is shocked to find that perhaps she has motherly instincts after all."
