THE STORY: As Martin Gottfried outlines: "The president of a large corporation is using the executive suite to house his young mistress, whom he sees once a week. A young man who has sold his factory to the middle-aged romancer is chagrined to find it about to be closed for tax advantages. Directed to the suite by a new secretary, he comes upon the girl, then the wife and finally the president. But the plot takes nice little turns. When the young man meets the mistress she tells him that he was misdirected, that his is not the executive suite but 'a special arrangement—like a scholarship.' Eyeing the diamond necklace she received for a birthday gift, he remarks, 'You must have made dean's list.' When the wife finds them she assumes they are a nice young married couple and between the playful pretense of the two and the older woman's romantic concern for them, Miss Resnik builds a delightful scene…With the completion of the mixed-up quartet by the husband's return, the fun bubbles happily along right through the…two acts—it is a happy comedy with the giddy bubble of champagne."
A smash-hit Broadway success, this delightful comedy deals with four very engaging and believable people: a millionaire businessman; his disarmingly innocent mistress; his hoodwinked wife; and an irate victim of his sharp practice; whose paths cross each other under the most unexpected and hilarious circumstances. "ANY WEDNESDAY has a delightfully fresh charm, a bright and engaging humor, a gay spirit, and a sympathetic heart." —NY Post. "…its charm doesn't falter, its comedy is deliciously satisfying, and it keeps the audience happily involved all the way." —NY World-Telegram & Sun.
