Let's pretend we're in Medianville, U.S.A.--home of a nonprofit professional theater company called the Earnest Theater. The Earnest is working on a new musical called "12 1/2" that has attracted the attention of Broadway producers. It's a show about preteens: their hormones, their Ritalin, the divorces among their parents--the usual themes. The 16-year-old pop recording sensation Britannia Arrowwood wants to star in "12 1/2."
