Nicki Cochrane is an urban legend in the New York theatre scene. The 78-year-old Indian lady has been seeing a play every day for more than a quarter-century. Always taking along her large bags, Nicki is ready to fight for a free seat at any show that’s worth her time. She has developed an array of ingenious means by which she acquires free tickets to most New York theaters. When small talk with the box office managers doesn’t doesn’t get her a free ticket, Nicki stands outside the theater entrance, holding a sign which says “One Ticket Please” and hoping that a stranger will have an extra ticket to spare. Despised by certain theater staff for her behavior, Nicki prides herself with a staunch dedication to the art. But at what point does dedication turn into addiction? As Nicki rushes around Manhattan from one theatre to the next, we find out more about her life and the sacrifices she has had to make in order to make a life at the theatre possible.
