Fall, 1898: The Civil War is still a living memory, and the all-black town of Nicodemus, Kansas offers a refuge for many former slaves. At one homestead lives a family of courageous and sharp-witted women determined to make a place for themselves. They overcome tremendous odds in a heroic effort to escape the scars of the past in this uplifting story of bravery, pride, and sisterhood.
Raymonde has everything a turn-of-the-century Parisian housewife could want — everything, that is, except for a husband who lavishes her with attention in bed. Doubting his fidelity, she gets a “flea in her ear,” sending all involved on a wild ride of accusations, mistaken identities, and riotous confusions! Get ready for side-splitting hilarity as this classic, fast-paced fling unfolds. Aux armes!

Audiences mob the theater when a Hollywood action star takes the Broadway stage in a recently discovered play by Franz Kafka. But what if he can’t go on? Enter Harry, the understudy, a journeyman actor who has the chops but not the résumé. This hilarious look at life backstage gets even crazier when Harry reunites with the stage manager (his ex-fiancée!) and dukes it out with the film star as obstacles mount and tensions rise. Life in the theater — it ain’t easy!
