Primary Stages welcomes back their favorite farceur Charles Busch, the author of Primary Stages’ hits You Should Be So Lucky
and Olive and the Bitter Herbs
, and Broadway’s The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife
. This new comedy features Mr. Busch himself as an out-of-work female impersonator who, when his elderly landlady dies in her sleep, takes on her identity in order to hang on to her valuable Greenwich Village townhouse. This “perfect” plan goes awry and leads to a wild path of twists and reversals plotted by an eccentric rogues gallery of outrageous schemers. Expect Busch’s signature blend of quick-witted banter and gender-bending hijinks in this new play written specifically for Primary Stages from the master of Off-Broadway farce.
