Tinseltown Without Pity
In act one, scene one of Jane Martin's play Somebody/Nobody, an actress enters in an evening dress covered in blood. The story is set, perhaps needless to say, in Hollywood.
Martin has drawn a cast of industry types who are either working in B movies or would like to be. Toss in an agent, a bounty hunter, and a German-speaking vampire stalker, and you have a comedy rather unlike most that Arizona Theatre Company has offered before. Its a piece that riffs on the entitlement and majesty afforded Hollywood stars, and the ways in which this crazy power can destroy a young actors life. Think Lindsay Lohan. Britney Spears. Any young Tinseltown thing with big fame and somewhat smaller talent.
