Set in New York City, CONCRETE JUNGLE is a modern romantic musical comedy inspired by Cyrano. In this musical "catfish", aspiring poet Abby slings drinks at the Concrete Jungle to pay off her student loans. Upon suffering a bout of writer's block, Abby gets a phone call from a panic-stricken Canadian writer guy named Guy that changes her life forever as she begins imagining the inner lives of her customers that sparks her writing to take on a new topic for her...love. But, after Abby describes herself as her friend Vanessa, will Guy professes his love to the wrong woman, or will Abby face her greatest fears and reveal her true self?
