Two Nobodies In New York JEFF
What if this dialogue were set to music?
What if what we’re saying could be said in a song?

HUNTER
Hey, that’s not a bad idea perhaps we could use it
Music in a musical, how can we go wrong?



BOTH
We could
Ask significant questions
We could
Get important points across

Like…

HUNTER
Are we writing for art

JEFF
And is art a springboard for fame

HUNTER
And will fame get folks to trust us

BOTH
But will they trust us
If it’s just us
Me and you
Two nobodies in New York

HUNTER
Hey, I think it’s working we’re discovering choices
Lots of things to think about when writing a show

JEFF
Yeah, creating a vehicle to showcase our voices
And I don’t mean our vocal cords, I mean what’s below

HUNTER
Uh-huh

BOTH
We could
Ask significant questions
We could
Get important points across

Like…

HUNTER
Are we writing for art

JEFF
And is art a springboard for fame

HUNTER
And will fame get us a paycheck

BOTH
But will a paycheck mean that we’re sellouts
And if we sell out
Will they yell out
Me and you
Two nobodies in New York

HUNTER
Key change

JEFF
Maybe someday we could get a theater
And if not this festival then somewhere out west

HUNTER
TV actors in our show, what could be better?

JEFF/HUNTER
Sweeter/ We could…

HUNTER
What?

JEFF
Sweeter, we’ve been over this. You know the lyric is sweeter.

HUNTER
But here’s the deal. One of them sounds like it’s two syllables
and the other sounds like it’s three syllables, so it’s
like: sweeter, the-ater. Does that rhyme?

JEFF
Yes. Sorry, Larry, from the key change. A-five, six, seven, eight!

Maybe someday we could get a theater
And if not this festival then somewhere out west

HUNTER
TV actors in our show, what could be swee-ater?

JEFF
Thanks. Great.

We could get that woman who was on Empty Nest

HUNTER
Dinah Manoff, she’s awesome!

JEFF
Yeah

HUNTER
She was in Grease

JEFF
Yeah!

BOTH
And Leader of the Pack!

We could
Ask significant questions
We could
Get important points across

Like are we writing for art
And is art a springboard for fame
And will fame get us a sitcom
And a sitcom get us on Ellen

And will Ellen get folks to like us
And if they like us
Will they mike us
Me and You

Two nobodies in New York
Nobodies in New York!
