ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Ken Ludwig’s “Leading Ladies” pairs screwball comedy with farce in an homage to “Some Like It Hot.”
The play will open on Friday, Jan. 17, at the Adobe Theater. Performances run on weekends through Feb. 9.
Two Shakespearean actors appear in the Amish country of York, Pennsylvania, mounting The Bard’s plays on the Moose Lodge circuit in 1958. They learn through a newspaper that Florence, an ailing elderly woman, has been unable to locate Max and Steve, her nieces. The siblings moved to England as children and Florence wants to include them in her multimillion dollar inheritance.
