A washed-up Broadway impresario and his accountant conspire to produce the worst musical ever, then keep the investors’ money when it flops. The script they choose is in incredibly bad taste, but we won’t spoil it for you here – just enjoy it and don’t bother with the 2005 remake…the things producers will do to make a buck!
