Give my regards to Broadway. . .please?

The moment Camille Chaplin gets a rave review in "The New York Times" for her performance in an Off-Off Broadway show, she's certain it's her ticket to the big time. Instead the show tanks, her agent drops her, and suddenly Camille's career is about as hot as Tara Reid's. At least there's her sweet, reliable boyfriend, Daniel. All he wants is to marry her and start a family.

Anyone who can pull this off deserves more than a Tony. . .

Suddenly, Camille finds herself navigating a surreal, Upper East Side swirl of saccharin-sweet mommy-and-me classes, nannies with indecipherable accents, and women who can't seem to stop chirping about how "fulfilled" they are. Then, while apartment hunting, Camille runs into the charming, sexy Broadway director, Eric Hughes. It can't hurt to pretend to be interested in his stunning apartment. Or to be single. And childless. And available for an audition. Can it?

It's not "lying," it's acting. . .

Now, Camille is playing the role of her life--pretending to be two vastly different women on two completely different stages, and having a ball. . .as long as she can keep up the fa ade. But is she willing to risk everything she has for something she wants?
