Terrific show. Every actor was well cast and extraordinary in their role. A high-energy, fun night of top flight entertainment. Great seat as well.

It was quite an enjoyable evening. The theater had stadium seating so no matter where you sat you had a great view. I would go back.

Description

Book by James Magruder

Lyrics by Susan Birkenhead

Music by Jeffrey Stock

What do you do when the man you adore wants to kill you? You seduce him, disguised as a man impersonating another woman, while fending off the affections of both his uncle and his aunt, of course! With the assistance of some clever servants, Princess Léonide transforms herself to win the love of ravishing handsome and sheltered Prince Agis. But her disguises capture more hearts than she bargained for. With a lovely score, and a fanciful story, this bon bon of a musical will make your heart bloom.

“It’s bawdy. It’s whimsical,” explains Director Clay Hopper,“It’s full of gender-bending seductions and plot-twists that will make your head spin.”

About the Ticket Supplier: Olney Theatre Center

Located just north of Washington, D.C. in arts-rich Montgomery County, Maryland, Olney Theatre Center for the Arts offers a diverse array of professional productions year-round that enrich, nurture and challenge a broad range of artists, audiences and students. One of two state theaters of Maryland, OTC is situated on 14 acres in the heart of the beautiful Washington-Baltimore-Frederick "triangle," within easy access of all three cities.

An award-winning regional theater, Olney Theatre Center operates under an Actors' Equity Association Council of Stock Theaters (COST) contract, one of only three theaters in the country to operate under such a contract.

In addition to its mainstage season, which emphasizes 20th-century American classics, new works, area premieres, reinterpretations of classics and musical theater, OTC offers a wide range of programs and affiliations including: National Players, America's longest running classical touring company (since 1949), which performs for high school and college audiences in over 25 states; Potomac Theatre Project, which offers experimental and alternative plays that explore provocative and challenging human situations, ideas and visions; special school performances of mainstage shows; a free Summer Shakespeare Festival; and post-show discussions.
