When a mishap puts the star out of commission, the theatre manager puts his assistant on the stage in his place. What follows is a night of mistaken identity and hilarious chaos. A sensation on Broadway and in London's West End, this madcap, screwball comedy is guaranteed to leave audiences teary-eyed with laughter.

"A remarkable piece of theatre… a masterpiece… Author Ken Ludwig has verve, a sound grasp of plot mechanics and a rare ability to couple high art with low comedy." - The London Times

"A furiously paced comedy with more than a touch of the Marx brothers… a marvelous combination of wonderful farcical moments and funny lines." - Time Out New York
