A delightful comedy of errors in two halves which dovetail together beautifully. We have a fading Hollywood diva, at 29 fearing her superstardom is slipping and so tired of her life. She takes a lowly-paid part as Rosalind in As You Like It on a small London stage. Contrasting the life of a pampered American film star with that of a poor stage actress is done with much humour and insight. The twists and misunderstandings are charming in a most enjoyable romp where all’s well that ends well. I loved it. Comparison: Penny Vincenzi, Wendy Holden, Kathleen Tessaro.
