Based on the well-known film, this musical tells the story of an unlikely romance between Paula, a vulnerable single mother, and Elliot, an opinionated actor who shows up on her doorstep with a lease to sublet her apartment…while she’s still living there!
Paula’s heart has been trampled many times by love-and-leave actor boyfriends. Lucy, her twelve year old daughter, fears her mother will be dumped again, and finds herself trying hard not to be swayed by Elliot’s easy manner and charisma.
Elliot, in the meantime, is in New York for the first time, hoping for his big break in Shakespeare’sRichard III in a small theater off-Broadway. He doesn’t need the distractions of sharing an apartment with an early-rising school-age kid and her overly chatty (but pretty cute) mom!
Featuring the same unique humor that has made Neil Simon the most popular playwright in Broadway history, and with tunes by Marvin Hamlisch, it’s hard to go wrong with this warm, light-hearted romantic comedy!
