It’s 1981 and Jamie, a young bartender, is closing the bar one night, when there is a flash of red light outside. Thinking it’s an ambulance going by, he ignores it. Moments later, Jimmy, an older man, comes in for a quick one. They talk for a bit and get on to the subject of Jamie’s aspiring career as a pianist — he’s about to take time off from everything to just study and gig. When Jamie’s girlfriend joins them, they talk about life, careers and destiny. As he readies to leave, Jimmy shares a fantastic story about himself…one the others don’t believe. The arrival of another woman to the group brings this story about love, following your dreams (or not) and the costs of the decisions we make to its dénouement.
The outrageous Scream Queens are back in this follow up to the campy musical comedy about former B-movie horror actresses who reunite for a Sci-Fi convention which we presented in our 2014-2015 season.
