A round of applause for Leading Ladies
theaterguildwg.org/

The Theatre Guild of Webster Groves presents us with loads of fun and laughs in the form of Leading Ladies, a comedy by Ken Ludwig author of community theater favorite Lend Me a Tenor.

Mr. Ludwig's comedies feature scheming characters, mistaken identities, lots of costume changes and a pace that's break neck to say the least. Leading Ladies is true to form with cross dressing con artist actors, wide-eyed, dim witted men and women, a pastor who's a master at plotting his own gain, a doctor and his son who have one of the funniest scenes in the play, and an old woman who just won't die.

Leo and Jack are best friends, actors whose careers have bottomed out. Broke and desperate they hatch a scheme to cheat a dying woman out of her estate by posing as her long lost nieces. Trouble is, each of them falls in love. Leo with Meg who is engaged to the Pastor, and Jack with Audrey, a roller skating waitress. Through a series of close calls, purloined letters, an Aunt who hovers at death's door and a Pastor determined to expose the imposters we're led on a rollicking, silly, entirely enjoyable evening of comedy.

The cast is up to the task, with Rachel Giffhorn as Meg, the soon-to-be heiress who wants to be an actress; Brad Hammond as her clergyman fiancé who isn't above wanting the Aunt's fortune for his own prestige; Matthew Lindquist as Leo who falls for Meg instantly; Jason Meyers as Jack, the lanky, broadly comic as he gets in touch with his feminine side; Kristy Weber as Audrey, the object of Jack's affection.

Rounding out the cast are Dennis Roach as Doc; Andy Ruzicka as Butch, Doc's son and Audrey's fiancé, and Chris Beckner as Florence, the Aunt who isn't dead yet.

Leading Ladies is non - stop fun from beginning to end.
