So you think you want to be famous? So did teen idol and "shark-movie" star Sheena Keener, the darling of the press, the obsession of the paparazzi, and the Goddess of the 'E! Channel'. But now she can't stand to be looked at anymore and her Godzilla of an agent is on the warpath. When Sheena ends up on the doorstep of naïve newcomer Loli, a recent arrival from Flatt, Kansas, it's a wild ride on the road to fame. Sheena is a somebody who wants to be a nobody. Loli is a nobody desperate to be a somebody. In this hilarious comedy about Hollywood, fame, and the TMZ, renowned playwright Jane Martin takes dead aim at our culture of celebrity.
"No question, it's a funny show! – The Arizona Republic
"The comedy is off-beat and beyond way out there, with an energy level that's full-bore, redline action. Neil Simon this is definitely not... you might as well just give in and start laughing at the beginning, because for sure you'll be laughing by the end." " - The Tuscon Citizen
"The script is wicked funny... Laughing your ass off is a fine way to spend an evening." - Phoenix New Times
Somebody/Nobody premiered at the Temple of Music and Art in Tucson, AZ in March 2008 under the direction of Jon Jory.
