While most folks are excited, Sara Booth, who had her own brief stint on the Great White Way---on the arm of Milieu himself—is less than thrilled. Graf is now linked with his costar, Renata Trovaioli, a dyed-in-the-wool diva who plans to ride Graf’s coattails all the way to Hollywood. But Renata’s trip to the top comes to a screeching halton the play’s second night, when someone laces her lipstick with cyanide.
 
The plot thickens when Renata’s brother arrives on the scene and makes it clear exactly who he thinks the killer is. It seems Renata was stirring up plenty of drama behind the scenes, making enemies galore: her long-suffering makeup artist, an extremely harsh critic, an angry audience member…even boy toy Graf had a motive. But the most damning evidence points to Sarah Booth herself, and before she can say Big Daddy, she’s topping Sheriff Coleman’s list of suspects.
