It's 1960 and Parisian lothario Bernard has it good. His three fiancées, one French, one German and one American, are all beautiful airline hostesses with frequent -- but never overlapping -- layovers in Paris. And thanks to Bernard's faithful maid, who swaps out the photographs in his apartment according to schedule, the women will never find out about each other. That is until a new, faster Boeing jet throws the airline schedules out of whack and Bernard finds himself with all three women on his hands at once. Throw in Bernard's friend, who's hilariously bad at keeping all the lies straight, and the whole perfect setup might just fall apart. This slapstick farce from French playwright Marc Camoletti has been performed in London and on Broadway and was made into a 1965 film starring Tony Curtis and Jerry Lewis. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
- "...winning backstage satire." --<em>Los Angeles Times</em>
When a financially-strapped Midwestern regional theater company is informed that their annual endowment grant is in question, and an inspector will be paying a visit to decide their fate, a case of mistaken identity wreaks havoc and puts a riotous spin on their already unusual version of A Christmas Carol.
Featured in the cast are Linda Alznauer, Michele Bernath, Cynthia Bryant, Patrick Burke, Kent Butler, Klair Bybee, Judith E., Larry Eisenberg, Lareen Faye, Doug Haverty, Robert McCollum, and Steven Wasserman.
