The Lady in Question
By Charles Busch
Directed by Hal Simons
A free wheeling satire of patriotic 1940's thrillers such as "Notorious" and "Escape," The Lady in Question tells the suspenseful tale of Gertrude Garnet, the most glamorous concert pianist on the international stage. On tour in 1940 Bavaria, her colossal self-absorption is challenged when a handsome American professor engages her aid in rescuing his mother from a Nazi prison.
