Can’t live with ‘em, can’t live without ‘em. Amanda and Elyot are enjoying a romantic honeymoon – just not with each other. This hilarious classic comedy filled with clever, witty barbs starts when an explosive divorced couple and their new spouses inadvertently honeymoon in adjacent rooms at the same hotel.

Noël Coward’s most popular and enduring comedy is a funny, tempestuous battle of equals.

This big-hearted, fierce, music-filled comedy has been hailed as “stitch-in-your-side funny” by the New York Times. Casey, an Elvis impersonator with everything going for him, including a flashy sequin jumpsuit, suddenly loses his gig, his rent is overdue, and his wife announces a baby on the way. So, when Elvis leaves the building and a drag show moves in, “The King” transforms into an all-out queen. With some snappy zingers and dance-worthy numbers, this wildly entertaining story challenges assumptions with extraordinary humor and depth.
