Stars Aren't Born, They're Made
Plot: There is more drama behind the scenes than on stage, as the team prepares an ambitious Broadway musical on the life of Marilyn Monroe.
Story: A Broadway musical, based on the life of Marilyn Monroe, is being written by the successful songwriting duo of Tom and Julia. Julia recently began the process of adopting a child with her husband Frank of many years, but her focus is torn when she has the opportunity to write another Broadway hit. A rivalry soon forms for the lead role between a youthful, inexperienced Midwestern beauty Karen - who is trying to find fame in the big city against all odds - and stage veteran Ivy Lynn, who's determined to leave the chorus line and finally get her big break. A tenacious producer Eileen discovers the "Marilyn" project and jumps on board with a brilliant director, Derek - whose talent is matched by his cunning and egocentric amorality.
Did you know: Becky Ann Baker and Dylan Baker, who play Karen's parents, are also married in their real lives. Both are Broadway veterans; he has been in many Broadway plays, including "Eastern Standard" and "God of Carnage," and she was in the original casts of musicals such as "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas," "Titanic," and "Assassins."
