Funny Little Thing Called Love
by Georgetown Palace Theatre

Apr. 21 - Apr. 22

This deliriously funny new Jones Hope Wooten comedy is all about that four-letter word: L-O-V-E. Under a full moon on this unpredictable night of romance, these four rollicking tales take you on an around-the-globe journey of unexpected and hilarious twists and turns:

  • A slick, successful used-car-selling Romeo in Dallas, Texas, believes he’s answering Cupid’s call, only to realize too late that he’s wandered into a life-changing trap set by three fed-up Juliets.
  • On an island getaway, The Hallelujah Girls, a group of fun-loving gals from Georgia, say aloha to their wild sides as they accidentally crash a Hawaiian honeymoon in progress. These five women—and Waikiki—will never be the same!
  • In a rooftop London bistro, sparks fly when two strangers surprisingly start to connect, only to be thwarted by a hyperactive American tourist who’s determined to be the center of attention, and the unpredictable antics of an ancient waitress who wields a wicked sousaphone.
  • And finally, in Manhattan a man tries to battle his way out of a mid-life crisis with an ill-advised and elaborate marriage proposal. Unfortunately, it all goes wildly off-track when his caterer passes out, a tap-dancing singing telegram girl breaks into sobs rather than song, his ex-wife saunters in wearing nothing but a bathrobe and a smile, and a cowering superhero inches nervously across his twelfth-floor window ledge.

So, open your heart to romantic mayhem and come join the fun!

Jake (M, 40’s-50’s): Stan’s best friend. Sarcastic and cynical at the prospect of the proposal. Never afraid to make a joke. Maybe a bit lonely himself.

Amber (F, 40’s-50’s): A singing/dancing telegram there for the proposal, ends up in the middle of the chaos. Very bright personality.

Rita (F, 40’s-50’s): An EMT to help Mimi recover. Very feisty and man hungry. No real scruples to speak of.

Meredith (F, 40’s-50’s): Stan’s ex-wife. Sophisticated and wry. They share the apartment and is less than happy about the insanity that ensues.

Deena (F, 30’s-40’s): Stan’s girlfriend, the object of his desire. Pampered and assured. But proves to be less faithful than expected.
