SYNOPSIS: It’s 1942, and two of Hollywood’s biggest divas have descended upon the luxurious Palm Beach Royale Hotel — assistants, luggage, and legendary feud with one another in tow. Everything seems to be in order for their wartime performance…that is, until they are somehow assigned to the same suite. Mistaken identities, overblown egos, double entendres, and a lap dog named Mr. Boodles round out this hilarious riot of a love note to the classic farces of the 30s and 40s.
Show Cast (in alphabetical order): Taylor Covington, Charla Garrison, Terry Israel, Dakota Mertyris, Jerry Nussenblatt, Ethan Quagliano, Dayanara Terpos, Jimmy Zimmerman and Joanne Zimmerman with a special appearance of Coco Zimmerman as Mr. Boodles.
