Additional Info

A romantic comedy in which the leading lady chooses an imaginary man over a real man. A tribute to theatre and the women in it!

Julie has dedicated herself to a muse named Romeo who is grooming Julie for a Broadway debut as Juliet in Romeo and Juliet. Alex, the irresponsible love of Julie's life, returns from a five-year voyage to find himself and now he wants to recapture Julie's heart. To the muse's opposition, Julie goes on a date, and her heart is torn between Alex's apparent love for her and the muse who is always around commenting on Alex's every word. Oh, by the way, Alex also has a muse-in-training named Ginger, who not only needs a lot of attention, but keeps distracting Romeo because she likes Romeo. Will Julie choose the imaginary man or the real man? And are imaginary men more helpful and fun?
