THE STORY: Danielle, Lee, and Tiffany have scaled the masthead of Crimp magazine, gaining access to the best the city has to offer—nightlife, men, and the beautiful baubles showcased in every issue. But when workaholic Danielle is forced to face her mortality, she begins to wonder what it’s all worth. In this dark comedy, questions of romance, sex, ambition, and loyalty spin Danielle and her friends out of control as they consider the possibility of life without each other.
“McGraw’s wry and artful ULTIMATE BEAUTY BIBLE…is a play for anybody who has ever believed that the right lipstick, the right shoes, the right lover might meaningfully alter the course of one’s existence. Which is a lot of us.” —The New York Times.

“McGraw offers a…satisfyingly complex array of characters, relationships, and musings on life…McGraw question[s] whether people can in fact change from the outside in, or whether our outsides merely mask what’s underneath.” —TheaterMania.
