Descrizione Episodio:

TRAMA!:

Homer, Moe, Lenny, Carl e Barney stanno preparandosi per una notte di poker alla Taverna di Boe. Mentre sta per uscire, Homer promette a Lisa che se vince, potrà permettersi di pagare il suo tempo al migliore Campo Bande dal loro lato del Mississippi. Ma Homer perde tutto contro la leggenda del Broadway Laney Fontaine, che sta uscendo con Moe per la sua licenza di liquori.

Trying to convince Laney to give his money back, he invites her to dinner, only to show her how miserable they are. Lisa asks her to sing a song while she plays the saxophone. That’s when Laney realizes that Lisa has a lot of talent and could become a famous show biz kid. She asks Marge to take Lisa for a month to perform on her shows.

Marge angrily refuses, but Lisa convinces her to let her go, with a little help from Grandpa, saying this might be the only opportunity to live her dreams. Laney takes Lisa to New York, where they met Chazz Busby, Lisa’s former ballet teacher. She easily passes the audition and manages to enter in one of the broadway shows. Later, during a Skype conversation, Marge realizes that Lisa is not in a good place and decides to take the family to New York to get her back.

On their way to the Big Apple, the family encounters Ned’s cousin, Jacob, and that Ned has brought shame to their family. At New York City, The Simpsons realize how happy Lisa is for making part of a broadway show, and they decide to go back to Springfield without her.
