Synopsis

Two famous movie stars who are anxious not to let their stars go out get together with their respective lovers to discuss filming a sex scene in their upcoming movie -- for real.  It’s been years since either one’s had a hit, and they are desperately hoping the latest movie by a hot-shot European director could change that.  What follows is a comedic romp through the raging insecurities, petty power struggles and name-dropping absurdities that comes with the fame and fortune of being a movie star. Egos are shattered, fistfighting ensues, and everyone drinks entirely too much alcohol… all well before dinner.  Neil Labute’s no-holds barred satire, The Money Shot, invites you into Hollywood’s inner circle while holding up a mirror to each of us, implicating our role in this culture in which very little is sacred and nearly  nothing is taboo.  As the evening devolves, the play asks, “How far will you go to hold on to fame?”
