Couldn’t we all use a laugh??

A young woman calls on the gods of Ancient Greece to save her love life—but it’s not the gods of love who show up to help…

McCarter favorite Ken Ludwig (Baskerville, Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express) is back with a hilariously divine new play filled with madcap mayhem, a touch of romance, and lots of laughs. 

 

RAPTUROUS LAUGHTER…bright production and terrific performances.
