Marty Sullivan, an actress —
although you can't tell she's a girl from her name
— prepares for her audition for a musical
("What Should I Sing?").
She shows off her new pictures

Then she is called into
audition room.

There is an Eating Man <mUnCh>,

 a Sleeping Man (zzzzZZZ),

several ominous looking
women in sunglasses,

a Pianist
[He explains to her what she needs to know about accompanists ("In My Hands").]

"Well. All right, then." She sings her audition song ("My Audition Song"). Bad things happen.

(She wasn't the right type anyhow.)
The Audition has been performed all over, including Manhattan Class Company, Steve McGraw's, and CAP21.

There are four principals: Marty, Eating Man, Sleeping Man, and the Pianist, and 2–5 ominous women in sunglasses (although those roles may be omitted).
In addition to performing his role, the Pianist also accompanies the show.
