Scenes took place in front of doorways at the back of lively Broadway bars. One read ‘The Stage Broadway’ and another ‘Jack’s’. A Bentley was parked outside in the alley, which will belong to a new character in the show ­- a music executive played by Goldie Hawn’s son and Kate Husdson’s brother Oliver Hudson (Rules of Engagement).
