Book, Music and Lyrics by Jack Sharkey and Dave Reiser
This tuneful show is part nostalgic tribute, and part hilarious send up, of that quaint musical form of yesteryear, the operetta. Every convention of the genre is used, just slightly askew. We heartily recommend this show to all those who love operettas and to all those who hate them.
