Explore the phenomenon of the legendary Mae West, one of America's most enduring and controversial pop culture icons, in this sparkling romantic comedy with music about a guy, a gal, and their mutual admiration for one voluptuous blonde. Magically woven into the story is a celebration of songs and laughter of Mae West’s racy life and saucy career. The New York Times described it as "Hands down the best new American play of the season..." and said it allowed "…Mae West to shock and delight once again."
