Show Synopsis: In Paul Rudnick’s 2006 hilariously witty comedy of Manhattan manners, he explores marriage equality, friendships, and squandered riches. Take one high-powered attorney, blend with his deliriously social fashionista wife, and stir things up with their closest friend, one of the world’s most staggeringly successful fashion designers. Add a “bridezilla” daughter and mix with a wacky maid, a cocktail-fueled mother, President G. W. Bush and stir to create a “saucy, sharp-tounged comedy of uncivil disobedience” (NY Sun). “One of the funniest quip-meisters on the planet” – The New York Times.
Note: will only offend those on the wrong side of history.
