“Local actors Stephen Sim and Caity Curtis successfully pull off old-school laughs as the vintage vaudeville comedy team of George Burns and Gracie Allen, and in doing so remind audiences what made them so beloved.”

“Just like people easily fell in love with Gracie Allen when they first heard her, you’ll fall in love with Caity. Sassy, sweet and impersonating Allen’s familiar birdlike voice, her illogical logic and zany antics will have you in stitches. While Stephen comes in with the adoring patience and exasperation every good straight man needs.”
