(7 named parts: 3 women, 4 men, chorus optional)
Your audience will leave the theater whistling after seeing this musical comedy, with its witty lyrics and catchy melodies. (Almost) Got It Made both recalls the classic American musical, and updates the genre by using a wide variety of music styles and telling a modern story. This one-act musical is a condensed version of the full-length Got It Made for groups seeking a shorter (65-minute) piece with a smaller cast (7 named parts; chorus optional).
Our heroine Molly Merriweather is a young woman (20's or 30's) hoping to make her mark at Cheeseman's Real Estate Development and Management, Inc. (think Trump Enterprises). Her assistant Freddy is a loyal friend and employee, but romantically challenged. Her college friend Chloe, a glamorous fashion photographer, has just returned from Milan to learn her identity has been stolen.
Molly talks Freddy and Chloe into staking out some ATM's to try to catch the identity thief. While Freddy and Chloe find a perfectly shallow kind of love, Molly's investigation leads right back to Cheeseman's and threatens to bring down the whole company. It all leads to fun, surprises and the requisite happy ending in this send-up of office politics, modern romance, and corporate corruption.
