Teatro La Quindicina presents Skirts on Fire
What would a Teatro season be without a madcap screwball comedy? Really, it’s a question that’ll probably never get an answer, and we suspect you’re fine with that. Not seen since 2003, this Lemoine caper is set in the world of magazine publishing in 1950s Manhattan. A famous literary hoax begets a further series of deceptions, misunderstandings, and outright lies, until things come to a head in the smallest hotel room in New York. Andrew MacDonald-Smith presides as the chief provocateur in a cast which also includes Kendra Connor, Andrea House, Paula Humby, Louise Lambert, and Ron Pederson.
