Leading Ladies

Performing at The Waterfront Playhouse in Key West (Dec 17 - Jan 11)


Written by Ken Ludwig, the Tony-Award winning author of LEND ME A TENOR & MOON OVER BUFFALO

Leading Ladies is the hilarious comedy about two British Shakespearean actors who are down on their luck, performing in Moose Lodges. When they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long lost English nieces, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash. What ensues is a classic farce of romantic entanglements, naughty innuendos, mistaken identities and drag. Think Some Like It Hot mixed with Charlie’s Aunt.

Leading Ladies is a highly combustible and continuously hilarious comedy by Ken Ludwig, Broadway’s reigning comic writer.” The Cleveland Plain Dealer

“Ludwig’s comedy is so funny, it will make sophisticated men and women cackle till their faces hurt.” The Houston Press.

Directed by Danny Weathers
Set Design by Michael Boyer
