Project Synopsis
Bianca and Nathan are working as waiters on the side, from their Broadway dreams. The manager, Tony, tells them that he’s gonna close the restaurant. Bianca who knows the role the restaurant has had for theatre can’t let that happen. She gets the idea of having a show in the restaurant like in the old days. She pitches the idea to Tony who refuses. He made his decision, he’s gonna close and sell the restaurant. Bianca who’s not a quitter can’t stop there and starts trying to convince Tony. She sings, dances on her way to take orders and Nathan plays the piano resulting in earning a generous tip. Tony doesn’t see the potential of their idea and already has buyer interested, the deal will be concluded tonight. Bianca can’t take it anymore and improvises a musical number to finally prove her point to Tony. He’s intrigued by the noise coming from the dining room and is finally reminded of the importance his restaurant has had for Broadway and the role he could maybe still have play nowadays.
