Additional Info

Money, Power, Murder, Lust, Revenge and Marvelous Clothes - A Musical Send-Up of the Prime-Time Soaps

The title really says it all! If you have ever laughed at all the ridiculous excesses of the prime-time soaps, you're going to laugh harder than ever as you read this show! A musicalization of Tim Kelly's Destiny!, you'll find that even the tunes are a scream in this version, and wait until you get to the trial scene, wherein Jack Sharkey has performed the highly unlikely task of putting the lyrics to the tune of Franz Liszt's Second Hungarian Rhapsody - with hilarious results! How plain Peggy Drabb becomes fabulous Destiny Mink and rises from poverty to fabulous wealth (and beauty!) is the plot of this failure-proof musical. Certain to please audiences and casts alike.
