Interior Set

This sparkling comedy starred Angela Lansbury and John McMartin on Broadway. Ben is a conservative, bigoted chauvinist who runs an inherited Massachusetts carpet cleaning factory with a despotic hand. He has a heart attack and goes on a rehabilitating cruise, leaving his equally hard nosed daughter Lillian in charge of the business. Previously more interested in Neiman Marcus catalogues than cleaners, she averts a strike by improving working conditions, increases the profits and thinks of going into politics. Ben returns to find himself stripped of his power. Along the way, there's much comic confusion resulting from their extra marital affairs.
