Leading Ladies is a sparkling all-womxn cabaret musical incorporating seven separate historical vignettes onto a single set, a backstage dressing room.
At the opening of the play, Mary, a young actor tortured by doubts about her ability, debates whether or not she should abandon her career in “The Voice of My Critics.” The dressing room comes alive with ghosts of famous women actors, and one by one they reenact critical moments in their own careers, when they had to confront fear and doubt.
Finally, Mary, with the help of the crusty stage manager and the feisty older actor Edith, reaches a resolution to her dilemma.
