By Charles Busch

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.

With Gertrude played by Kenneth Ansloan of The Dolls of Albuquerque and Hal Simons (Deathtrap, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum) directing, you can bet that The Lady in Question will be fast-paced, action packed and full of fun. Ron Bronitsky, Caroline Wickwire, A.J. Carian, Bryan Durden and Lisa Fenstermacher join the cast.
Mr. Simons said of his collaboration on this show: “Kenneth and I have been wanting to work together for several years. This is the perfect project for us because of its sense of fun and its love of film noir.”
"[T]his is camp – over-the-top, kitschy comedy in deliciously bad taste.... [A]ll excel bringing this hilarious spoof to vivid life."
