The play is based loosely on the infamous Lana Turner-Johnny Stompanato-Cheryl Crane scandal, told from “Johnny’s” point of view. Johnny, a young gigolo/hood, sees Serena, an older, legendary movie actress, as his ticket to a new life, while Serena dreams of the glory days when she was the Hollywood glamour queen. Caught in the middle of this doomed triangle is Chris, Serena’s 14-year-old daughter –- moody and awkward, with little of her mother’s grace or beauty.
