[standing on the stage of an empty stadium]
Grace Davis: Where are we?
Grace Davis: I can’t hear you, Maggie.
Maggie: I grew up around New York. It’s my whole world. If you told twelve year-old me, that one day I’d be working for Grace Davis? She’s an icon.
Katie: This woman doesn’t even know your last name.
Maggie: She does, sometimes.
[to her backing singers as they are practicing on stage]
Grace Davis: I’m not going to tell you guys you’re great if you’re not great! Do it again.
[referring to Grace]
Grace’s Manager: Dang, the girl still give me goosebumps.
Man: Well, Grace, have you thought anymore about the Vegas residency?
Grace Davis: Actually, it think it’s time I record a new album.
Grace’s Manager: I mean, that’s one plan.
Maggie: What am I supposed to say to her? “I’m just a personal assistant, but I’d love to produce your music.”
Katie: Woh. Woh. Woh. Do not sell yourself short. You studied composing, Maggie.
Maggie: There hasn’t been a new Grace Davis record in a decade, and the fans want one.
Grace’s Manager: I’m her manager. Let me do my job, and you do yours, which is, get her coffee, Kleenex, Kotex, and whatever the else the hell that we’ve been paying you to do for the last six months.
Maggie: I’ve been here for three years!
Woman: You get paid? I thought you were an intern.
Maggie: [to herself] My life is a joke!
Grace Davis: [to Maggie] It’s really bleak out there for middle-aged singers. In the history of music, only five women over forty have ever had a number one hit. And only one of them was black.
Grace Davis: [to Maggie] I know everyone is happy with me doing the same show every night. What if there’s something more?
Maggie: Grace, you are the song. You should not be buried under all this flashy garbage. I didn’t want to tell you or Jack, but I did a cut of your song.
[over the speakers in the recording booth]
Grace’s Manager: Hey, hey! I can hear y’all. Y’all know it’s a damn microphone in there, right?
Grace’s Manager: All we got to do is play it safe and stack some money.
Grace Davis: I will decide what I do next.
Grace Davis: Is the food coming, sir?
Taco Truck Guy: We’ve been over this. We are not a drive-through.
Grace Davis: Well, it should be. It could be.
Fan: Oh, my God. Is that Grace Davis?
Grace Davis: Hi.
[holds up her hand to cover Grace’s face]
