Set in Pennsylvania in 1972, the comedy features 14 years old Carter played by Michael Urie, who acts as his alter-ego and the narrator. Life sketch of Carter is presented on live stage as how he was introduced to the theatre community and worked under the phenomenal director and stage designer, Irene.

According to Carter Beane, Shows For Days is autobiographical and reveals how he really got into theatre and where he's standing today. He has come a long way from where he started - sneaking out of his house as a child to participate in his local community theatre, to become an acclaimed playwright today. Two of his shows are ready for a simultaneous run on Broadway. He has penned books for award winning Broadway productions like Sister Act and Xanadu, latter earning him an Outer Critics Circle Award.

Sharing the stage with her will be the equally talented and versatile actor, Michael Urie, who has found immense fame for his role in the hit show, Ugly Betty.
