The musical, according to press notes, is described as such: "'I never really knew what I was like until I quit smoking, by which time, there was hell to pay.' So observes Charlotte, a young writer of short stories as she confronts her past, present and future in a post-9/11 Manhattan. With the help of her well-intentioned friends, she embarks on a modern-day odyssey as she desperately attempts to fill her nicotine-starved days.
