With a little up dating of references this show will work for companies that are looking for crowd pleaser.  The "hook" here is the tired and true gimmick of cross dressing.  The old movies of Mrs. Doubtfire and Tootsie come mind when reading this show.  The lead roles [husband and wife] are good roles and the wife has some good one liners. The second male lead is a fun role for a character actor.  The other roles are okay except for the maid.  Her role is not that large but if one has a loud brassy actress this is for her.

Set and costumes are modern and there is no set issues.  All in all very clean and fun show that will bring a smile everyone's face.
