Leading Ladies at StageNorth Theater
In this hilarious 1950’s comedy, Jack and Leo, two down on their luck Shakespearean actors are performing “Scenes from Shakespeare” on the Moose Lodge circuit in Pennsylvania. They learn of an old lady in York, PA, who is about to die and wants to leave her fortune to her sister’s long lost English children, Max and Steve. It is soon learned that Max and Steve are not nephews but nieces, and thus the hilarity begins. Romantic entanglements abound with men playing women, women playing men, you know, a typical Shakespearean play. The laughter and pace are nonstop. A familiarity with Shakespeare is not required but it will double your fun if you have some.
