LOG LINE

During the roaring twenties Daphne and Burton DeVoy are pampered stars of the London Stage.  On the last night of their hit show, Kiss Me Quick!, a mysterious chauffeur sends them hurtling through time to the mean streets of a futuristic Hollywood.  The snobbish Brits must seek the aid of a Psychic Drag Queen, Rastafarian Street Prophet, Megalomaniac Studio Executive, and Marilyn Monroe Wannabe, if they are to find their way home.

Kiss Me Quick! has a website for Theatre Companies to consider for production. It contains the entire score of 19 songs and a complete synopsis. Those interested may request the password for the private site by contacting Kelly.
