Cast: 5 women, 4 men
Running time: 95 minutes

A romantic comedy in which a monstrously self-absorbed and powerful diva visits a legendary New England musicians' retreat that has seen better days. Dangling the prospects of celebrity and success, she manipulates the collection of resident musicians as they struggle with the conflicts between career and love, the dangers of ambition, the perils of success, the pain of loss, and the glory of music.

Elements of farce, incidental music, various coats, and a mysterious stranger. One set.

“A lively, rollicking, highly enjoyable comedy that is guaranteed to be a rip-roaring crowd pleaser.”
- Shirle Gottlieb | Long Beach freelance critic

“The dialogue is terrific! ... with the Noel Coward-Moss Hart-George S. Kaufman touch.”
- Frank Rutledge, Literary Manager | Boarshead Theatre
