By Woody Allen This zany 14-character comedy, written by Woody Allen, takes place in the Soviet Union’s American Embassy during the Cold War. An American tourist, his wife and daughter rush into the embassy two steps ahead of the Russian police who suspect them of taking pictures and spying on the government. What the family doesn’t know is that the American ambassador is away and has left his incompetent son in charge. To complicate matters, while the family frantically plans their escape, the daughter and the ambassador’s son fall in love. Filled with hilarious dialogue, this show was a huge hit on Broadway.
Performances will be held in the Main Stage Theatre of the Performing Arts Center.
