Staged as a live taping of a 1968 television special that reunites a divorced singing duo, this kitschy spoof had New York critics singing its praises. As Pete and Keely stroll down memory lane (in eye popping costumes) reprising songs from their days of stardom, they take "unscripted" swipes at each other that dredge up hilarious moments from their turbulent past. This musical features unforgettable renditions of the era's popular favorites as well as original songs in the spirit of the times.

"Campy [with] nostalgic belly laughs." - The New York Times

"A rattling good time.... The score is a mix of golden oldies, including a clever travelogue made of songs about every state in the Union... A snappy scenario emerges ... [that] should leave no one unsmiling." - New York Magazine

"The brightest, happiest, and most entertaining little show in town." - New York Observer

"A sequined, bell bottomed parade of escalating fabulousness!" - Newsday

Presented by Special Arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
