Write Act Opens FABULOUS, 8/11

Fabulous! The Queen of New Musical Comedies is described as "a farce in the style of the Golden Age of Broadway. The show is a cross between Anything Goes, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and Some Like It Hot. It begins in Paris! Two female impersonators, Jane Mann and Laura Lee Handle, are down on their luck. Backing up Sue Flay, the worst Drag Diva in France, proved a complete disaster. They're jobless and homeless. Just when Jane and Laura Lee get ready to throw in their powder puffs ... a telegram! They'll headline as fabulous showgirls on a cruise ship, the Queen Ethel May. The catch? Keeping their male identities a secret from snooping crew members, jewel heisting gangsters and every gentleman caller that comes their way. It's vintage musical theater meets contemporary farce in a new musical comedy where practically everything goes."

Starring: DEONTE L. WARREN, STEVEN DOUGLAS STEWART*, JOHN WASCAVAGE*, Kristin Piacentile*, BRYAN SEASTROM, Amy Bizjak*, Courter Simmons*, RICKY ALTAMIRANO, BRAD BONG, DAWOYNE A. HILL, OMAR MASKATI and AARON VANDERYACHT.
