Brief synopsis of the play:
In the mid-twentieth century, a small town in upstate New York, called Massena, is looking forward to welcome their local celebrity, Benedict Dickinson, a journalist who writes Broadway reviews. Everyone is looking forward to meeting him again except Beatrice Nato, a feminist writer who dislikes Ben due to a scathing critique he wrote about one of her works.
However, both Beatrice and Benedict have something in common, namely their dislike for each other and the other gender, respectively. Due to the fact that both are quite stubborn, they eagerly try to convince others of their views on love and marriage. This mission becomes even more urgent when Ben’s assistant Clark and Beatrice’s cousin Haley fall in love with each other.
This love is even more endangered by John Donner, who is in love with Haley himself and who moves heaven and earth to isolate her from her family and friends in order to possess her. Together with Brad he plots to break into Nato Publishing in order to contrive a plagiarism intrigue which is supposed to destroy Haley’s reputation and make Clark part from Haley.
The ending you have to find out yourself and even if you already suspect how it might end, the music by Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Arthur Altman and Billy Hill, the fun of a comedy which shouldn’t taken too serious and outstanding actors guarantee a nice evening.
By the way, before and after the play as well as in the break you can enjoy cupcakes, ice tea and coffee to make the evening unforgettable!
