What do you do if your wife catches you kissing another woman? You tell your her that you're an FBI agent -- and that it was all in the line of duty! (Of course, you may end up with actual spies and FBI agents chasing you in the process...) Originally presented at The Martin Beck Theatre in New York City in 1958, Who Was That Lady I Saw You With? is a classic farce full of mistaken identities and outrageous plot twists, ratcheting up the laughs and complications until all's straightened out in the play's hilarious finish. A hit on Broadway over half a century ago, Norman Krasna's fast-paced comedy of errors was adapted into a popular 1960 movie starring Tony Curtis, Dean Martin and Janet Leigh. Learn More

I've attended other Rover Drama Works plays and this one sure didn't measure up. The actors worked very hard, but the play described as a farce, was more like something from the Three Stooges. The costumes literally fell apart during the play.
I hope the next play presented will be able to take advantage of some of the talented actors involved.
Lovesick and desperate, sculptor Brindsley Miller has embellished his apartment with furniture and objects d’art “borrowed” from the absent antique collector next door hoping to impress his fiancée’s pompous father and a wealthy art dealer. The catch? A blown fuse has plunged the apartment into darkness … just as said neighbor arrives home.
Unexpected guests, mixed-up cocktails, and the flame of a single lighter impede Brindsley’s frantic attempts to set things right before light is restored. A brilliant farce described by the International Herald Tribune as “pure hilarity.”
