DIRECTED BY JACK CUMMINGS III

The Duke on 42nd Street
229 West 42nd Street

A feisty drawing room comedy that premiered at Broadway’s Booth Theatre in 1925 and played for 245 performances, The Patsy was immediately immortalized in film by the brilliant Marion Davies and Marie Dressler. This affectionate new adaptation, performed by five-time OBIE-Award winner David Greenspan, playfully resurrects this Cinderella story of a girl who is a little less beautiful and a little less loved and her fractious, gossipy family. Filled with familial intrigue, marital sparring, lovers in pursuit, country club scandals, and labors of the heart, Transport Group’s The Patsy explores one family’s aspirations of wealth, status, and love in pre-depression America through one astonishing and virtuosic performer.
