Or (The Villain Never Could Get His Part Right)

It's 1900 in New York. Villainous barber of German descent, Herr Hans Kutter, has set his sights on our heroine, lovely Lorrie Ell, niece and heir-to-be of wealthy society matron and cat lover, Kitty Litter, who owns numerous successful beauty salons. Kutter's plan is to marry Lorrie, then knock off Kitty, making his wife and him fabulously wealthy. He employs ditzy vamp, Hedda Wood, to entice away any competition for Lorrie's attention. Alas for Kutter, when Lorrie meets and falls in love with our hero, handsome young barber Harry Noggin, even Hedda can't come between them. Things come to a head (figuratively speaking) at Kitty's Hair Ball, a swanky fund raiser for cats. Other characters include Kitty's and Harry's employees and their customers, as well as a distraught stagemanager and a stagehand who do their best to keep the play on track (and almost end up pulling their hair out!)
