In this hilarious sequel "e;Attack of the Theater People, "e;Edward Zanni and his merry crew of high school musical-comedy miscreants move to the magical wonderland that is Manhattan.
It is 1986, and aspiring actor Edward Zanni has been kicked out of drama school for being "e;too jazz hands for Juilliard."e; Mortified, Edward heads out into the urban jungle of eighties New York City and finally lands a job as a "e;party motivator"e; who gets thirteen-year-olds to dance at bar mitzvahs and charms businesspeople as a "e;stealth guest"e; at corporate events.
