The show continues the tradition of commenting on current Broadway issues. It spoofs new shows, including Beauty and the Beast, Aida, and The Full Monty, and the revivals of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, The Music Man, Cabaret, and Kiss Me, Kate; older shows, such as Annie Get Your Gun, Miss Saigon, and Les Misérables; and personalities, such as Gwen Verdon, Édith Piaf, Heather Headley, Marin Mazzie, Ben Brantley.[2] The reviewer for CurtainUp noted that the "best and most original sequence is the one built around Contact. It's again underpinned by business concerns."[3]

The show opened in December 2000 in the Stardust Theater (at Ellen's Stardust Diner).[1] An album, the seventh in the series, accompanies the show, having been recorded and mixed in December 2000 by Cynthia Daniels at Sound on Sound in New York.

George contributed some of the ideas and dialogue for the sketches. [1]
