Ugly Betty meets The Terminator in this new sci-fi musical by D'Arcy Drollinger (Shit & Champagne, Project: Lohan). When lonely, put-upon secretary Eileen spots an ad for a fully functioning mechanical male companion, she takes her future by the reigns and places an order. Mr. Irresistible soon arrives on her doorstep and, true to fantasy, a romance blossoms. Just one problem: He's not her mail-order groom. He's an exterminator on a service call. Soon the official Acme Brand Mr. Irresistible comes knocking, and the humble exterminator can't compete with the custom-made dream man. But just as Eileen is settling into a state of bliss with her new perfect beau, a coworker she's been complaining about turns up dead, and Eileen becomes suspicious of her robotic Romeo. She contemplates sending him back -- where he'll be disassembled for parts -- but Mr. Irresistible catches on and begins a fight for his life. Will Eileen finally find her voice and learn where true love has been all along? Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Rita Moreno has appeared on stage, television and in concert and film for more than 40 years. She is the only female to have won all four of the most prestigious show-business awards – the Oscar, Emmy, Tony and Grammy – an achievement that is noted in the Guinness Book of World Records. The Oscar was for her performance as Anita in the 1962 motion picture “West Side Story.” The two Emmys were for a 1977 variety appearance on “The Muppet Show” and for a dramatic guest appearance on “The Rockford Files” in 1978. The Tony was for her 1973 triumph on Broadway as Googie Gomez in “The Ritz.” And, the Grammy was for her 1972 performance on “The Electric Company” album for children, which was based on the long-running television show of the same name.
Among her most recent projects are performances in “Cosby Mystery Series,” the highly acclaimed HBO series “Oz,” Anne Meara’s “After Play,” and Circle Repertory’s production of “Size of the World.” In 2002 Moreno appeared with the San Francisco Symphony in a production of “Candide.”
