Overview

Staged as a live taping of a 1968 television special that reunites a divorced singing duo, this kitschy spoof had New York critics singing its praises. As Pete and Keely stroll down memory lane (in eye popping costumes) reprising songs from their days of stardom, they take "unscripted" swipes at each other that dredge up hilarious moments from their turbulent past. This small scale musical from the director of When Pigs Fly and the producer of The Mystery of Irma Vep features unforgettable renditions of the era's popular favorites as well as original songs in the spirit of the times.
