Cast: 1 W 2 M

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. Her friendliness and charm leave Norman hopelessly smitten. Meanwhile, his partner 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 while she is convinced that they are editing a dangerously subversive magazine, Sophie soon finds that her real source of annoyance is that the wrong man is pressing his attention on her. Happily, this situation is reversed in time, as love and politics blend delightfully in a bubbling series of funny happenings, set forth by Neil Simon’s mastery of skill and inventiveness.

Critics’ Reviews:

“Mr. Simon can do wonders… with casually tossed-off fantasies that pop up from nowhere and whistle as they go by.” – The New York Times

“Charm, brightness, deft inventiveness and capacity for good, honest hilarity.” – New York Post
