A Miami Beach hot-shot circa 1986 is stunned to discover that his beautiful young girlfriend of the past five years not only used to be a man but is also the long-lost child of his good buddy Milty. When Milty finds out that Mel has been shtupping “Marla”, he is hell-bent on revenge. Ex-wives, Mae West, Jerry Springer, and 13 original musical numbers, add to the hilarity. "Belly-laughing blast!" “It is to the playwright’s credit,” says Around Town theatre critic, “that the playwright tackles serious issues like marital trust, sexual identity, gender acceptance, honesty, faithfulness and friendship, with humor and love.” Book & Music by Ginger Reiter (The Jackie Mason Musical). Marla will be reprised by Comedian Sheba Mason. Free Wine. Free Parking. Socially Distanced limited seating. Temperatures taken at door. R-Rated. No one under 17 admitted.
