A brilliant play, beautifully fashioned, sometimes wacky and sometimes sad, combined with hilarity, poignancy, outrageousness and tragedy. A songwriter with visions of glory toils by day as a zookeeper and by night sings at piano bars in Queens, New York, where he lives with his wife. Meanwhile, downstairs lives his mistress. Chaos ensues on one day when the Pope makes his first visit to the city, his soldier son Ronny goes AWOL, an old-school chum, now a successful Hollywood producer, shows up with his starlet girlfriend in tow, and a group of nuns all descend on the apartment in this enchanting, zany farce.
