It's 1942 and two of Hollywood's biggest divas have descended upon the luxurious Palm Beach Royale Hotel to perform at a USO benefit. Complication number one: the two ladies have a legendary ongoing feud that turns violent if they come near each other. Complication number two: the performers both wind up booked into the same Presidential Suite! Throw in a beleaguered general manager trying to keep the peace, two easily confused bellhops, a nose-rubbing society matron, and a gossip columnist looking for dirt, this play of mistaken identities, overblown egos, double entendres, and a lap dog named Mr. Boodles is a hilarious, laugh-out-loud romp. A true love note to the classic farces of the 30s and 40s!
