Über diesen Titel


Vic Bowering is an actress with more wit than weeks toward unemployment, so when she finally bags a leading role in a Maine repertory company's summer production of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, she thinks her luck just might be changing. But, as any actor can tell you, luck is a funny thing in theater. It was the original actress's untimely demise that landed Vic this to-die-for role, and the company's next show will be the cursed Mac - er, the Scottish play. Combine these bad omens with no rehearsal, an unknown cast, and a set plagued by increasingly dangerous and mysterious mishaps, and Vic's summer is shaping up as a bus-'n'-truck actor's worst nightmare. And if that doesn't provide enough drama, she's also fielding long-distance meddling from her longtime beau, NYPD Sergeant Dan Duchinski, and her not-so-longtime almost-ex-husband, Barry Laskin, strangely united in their effort to get her offstage and out of Maine.
Still, the show must go on - that is, if the theater and cast remain standing. Murderously clever, wickedly funny, this is Dorian Yeager at her best.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Shoehorned at a moment's notice into a backwoods Maine company's production of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, sometime actress Vic Bowering has surprisingly little trouble stepping into the shoes of her predecessor, Garrett Heinrich, or slipping into the bed of her humpable leading man, TV star Nick Jacobs--even though she's being unfaithful to both her not-quite- ex Barry Laskin and her not-quite-lover Dan Duchinski (NYPD). But before the cast can begin rehearsals of composer/director Jonathan Resnick's alternate production--Oh, Mac!, a musical version of Macbeth--a series of suspicious mishaps threatens to sideline cast and crew alike, rousing Vic to wonder if the electrical accident that ended Garrett Heinrich's unlikely stardom was really such an accident after all. Though there are dark hints about volatile rivalries among Vic's men, somebody's ties to Sweet Cheeks Production's release of Angel Drawers, and the frenzy of actors' superstition that Macbeth always releases, this low-key whodunit is too good-natured to develop any of them into the threatened plot. It's nice to see Vic back in action after her three years off (Eviction by Death, 1993)--even though her bright, nervous chatter cuts through every moment of potential danger or passion like a foghorn. Looks like the Scottish play has another victim to answer for. -- Copyright ©1996, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
