Your audience will leave the theater whistling after seeing this musical comedy with its witty lyrics and catchy melodies. (Almost) Got it Made
recalls the classic American musical, but it also updates the genre by using a wide variety of music (from Broadway to reggae) and by telling a thoroughly modern story. This one-act script is a condensed version of the full-length Got it Made
for groups seeking a shorter, 65-minute piece with a smaller cast (7 cast members; chorus optional).
Molly is a twenty- or thirty-something hoping to make her mark in the real estate development business. Her assistant, Freddy, is a loyal employee and friend, but romantically challenged. Her friend, Chloe, is a glamorous, high-powered fashion photographer who has just returned from Milan to learn her identity has been stolen.
Molly talks Freddy and Chloe into doing a “stakeout” to catch the identity thief. While Freddy and Chloe find a perfectly shallow kind of love, Molly’s investigation leads her back to her own company. It all gives rise to fun, surprises, and the requisite happy ending in this send-up of office politics, corporate scandal and modern romance.

This condensed version of Got It Made (HEUER) is written to make a chorus completely optional. Seven actors can perform the entire piece in about 65 minutes; however, if you are looking for the shorter timeframe but still want to include a chorus, the songs in which a chorus could participate are: "The Company Song," "The Big Cheese," and "We’ve Got It Made." (Many of these also include featured singing or dancing parts that could be assigned to various chorus members or to named characters if the chorus is not used.) Other songs that include (or could include) featured singers or dancers/actors outside the named characters are: "The Key to Success," "Molly’s Grandfather," and "Opportunity Knocks" (reprise).
