Storyline

While taking a vacation in the country Broadway star Adele (Marie Saxon) inadvertently as a prank finds herself auditioning for a chorus job in the midwest Gay GIrlies Burlesque touring show. Bobby (Jack Egan), the writer, director and star of the upcoming show, who, unaware that Adele is a New York celebrity, is so impressed with her dancing that he not only gives her a job but makes her a featured player in his show. He also becomes romantically attached to Adele. So, when Adele's maid, Jane (Louise Fazenda), reveals Adele's prank, Bobby is not amused by her deception and fires her A short time passes and Adele is back on Broadway and Bobby is about to make his east coast appearance in a night club. He spots Adele in the audience, forgets a routine, and is rescued by Adele when she hops onto the stage and assists him in one of the burlesque they had previously rehearsed together. He forgives her and they live happily ever after...unless they had their money invested in the stock ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
