Season 10 » Episode #07 - Icarus
Summary: A blockbuster Broadway musical plagued by high profile setbacks grabs another headline when the show's lead, sitcom star Marc Landry, falls to his death during one of the play's highly choreographed stunts.
At first, the cast and crew put on a show of solidarity in the face of disaster. But when Goren and Eames rule out an accident, the facade of the tight knit theater family falls away to reveal the players in this tragedy for who they really are: an understudy who resented being passed over for an untalented big name; an arena-filling rock star anxious that his songwriting doesn't pass muster; a producer obsessed with upholding his family's Broadway legacy; and a visionary director coming apart at the seams whose tireless assistant who will do anything to keep her together.
As Goren and Eames pull the curtain back further, they find only desperate, insecure artists whose hunger for the golden spotlight will take them to any lengths, even murder.
Who appeared in this episode?
- This episode's Broadway critic is named Micheal DeWitt, a not so subtle nod to a character from All About Eve. AAE's Addison DeWitt was a scathing and unforgettable character who was also a formidable Broadway critic. All About Eve is also mentioned by an understudy early in the episode.
