So swift is the action, so involved the situations, so rib tickling the plot in this London hit that at its finish audiences are left as exhausted from laughter as though they had run a foot race. Galloping in and out of the four doors of an English vicarage are an American actor and actress (he is now stationed with the air force in England), a cockney maid who has seen too many American movies, an old maid who "touches alcohol for the first time in her life," four men in clergyman suits presenting the problem of which is which, for disguised as one is an escaped prisoner, and a sedate Bishop aghast at all these goings on and the trumped up stories they tell him.

"Breathless show, fast tempo, plenty of laughs." —Variety

"A positive riot, in all my fifty years in the theatre I've never heard such laughter." —Bernard W. Suss, Elitch Gardens, Denver

The play is set in Paris in the 1970s during Marlene Dietrich's farewell concert tour. We are taken backstage and given glimpses of the everyday Dietrich. We see the woman who reinvented herself as an acclaimed chanteuse and she emerges as the ultimate professional, a perfectionist who is at times self-absorbed, generous, calculating, practical and charming. We see the Hollywood creation who never forgot her roots, her homeland and is haunted by the horrors of the Holocaust.
