Mayhem and madness, mistaken identities, crazy complications. A sophisticated and witty pastiche of the carefree, mindless, Hollywood morale-building feel-good musicals of the 1940s, featuring the icons of that glamorous era: Snavely T. Bogle, Faye Bogle, Ray Bagalucci, Anna Bagalucci, Danny O’Reilly, Trudy McCloy, Skip Watson & Willoughby Dittenfeffer (otherwise recognisable as W.C. Fields, Mae West, Jimmy Durante, Rita Hayworth, Gene Kelly, Ethel Merman, and Abbott & Costello).
First performed at The King's Head Theatre, Islington, in association with Patricia MacNaughton, 20 April 1999; First performance Apollo Theatre, London 16 September 1999; Bright Halo Productions Ltd; American premiere at The Berkshire Theatre Festival, Stockbridge, Massachusetts, July 2002, co-produced by The Westport Country Playhouse, Westport, Connecticut.
