Good Company Players' 2nd Space Theatre
Star Spangled Girl
March 1 - April 22, 2018
Andy and Norman are two earnest young men using their apartment as a publishing office for a “protest” magazine in San Francisco. Sophie, an Olympic swimmer and all-American girl, moves into another apartment on the same floor. Sophie makes her first appearance when paying a good-neighbor visit to the combination home and office of the two aspiring publishers. Her friendliness and charm leave Norman hopelessly smitten. Thereafter for Norman, love is a determined madness, with the humor of it heightened by Sophie’s frantic rejection of him. Meanwhile, Norman’s partner, Andy, is fielding telephone calls from the irate printer who wants to collect the money due him, and distracting the landlady from thoughts of back rent with motorcycle rides and surfing expeditions. And although she is convinced that they are editing a dangerously subversive magazine, our heroine soon finds that her real source of annoyance is that the wrong man is interested in her. Happily, this situation is reversed in time, as love and politics blend delightfully in a bubbling series of hilarious happenstance, set forth with the masterly skill and inventiveness that are the hallmarks of Neil Simon. Rated PG.
