THE STORY: This comedy of Manhattan manners explores the latest topics in marriage, friendships and squandered riches. The setting: a Park Avenue penthouse. The players: a powerhouse attorney, his deliriously social wife and their closest friend, one of the world’s most staggeringly successful fashion designers. Add a daughter’s engagement, some major gowns, the president of the United States, and stir.
“One of the funniest quip-meisters on the planet…the temptation is to quote as many of those one-liners as space allows…” —The New York Times.
“Hilariously witty…Rudnick’s script is ripe with jokes at the expense of the upper class—taking pokes at plastic surgery, designer fashion and charity functions.” —Show Business Weekly.
“A devastatingly accurate political and social satire.” —Backstage.
“As stuffed with riotous Rudnickisms as my mother’s pastries were with sugar and calories.” —CurtainUp.
“Paul Rudnick, ever the stylish and witty playwright, pressed foot to pedal on his imaginative overdrive to see how far it would take him into his new comedy and it seems to have taken him into an elegant terrain.” —Playbill.
