About this show

A mild-mannered housewife becomes an instant celebrity when her unruly pantaloons accidentally fall down as she watches a parade. Her new-found fame scandalizes her proper and priggish husband, thrills her upstairs neighbor, and brings out a string of odd suitors hoping to rent a room in their apartment. Comic mastermind Steve Martin's sidesplitting adaptation of this classic 1910 German farce by Carl Sternheim about a wardrobe malfunction is a hilarious look at the chaos and commotion caused by a flash of a lady's undergarments and the vagaries of fleeting fame. Daniel Gidron directs.
