Opening April 5th at CCCT, Ken Ludwig’s farce, “Leading Ladies, uses mistaken identities, letter mix-ups and abundant double entendres.
In this hilarious comedy by the author of Lend Me A Tenor and Moon Over Buffalo, two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, find themselves so down on their luck that they are performing “Scenes from Shakespeare” on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. When they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long lost English nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash. The trouble is, when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren’t nephews, but nieces! Romantic entanglements abound, especially when Leo falls head-over-petticoat in love with the old lady’s vivacious niece, Meg, who’s engaged to the local minister. Meg knows that there’s a wide world out there, but it’s not until she meets “Maxine and Stephanie” that she finally gets a taste of it.
Leading Ladies is on stage at CCCT April 5th through April 21, 2019 with our complimentary reception on opening night. Performances are at 8:00 PM on Fridays and Saturdays and 2:30 PM on Sunday afternoons.
