Ladies' night

Ladies' night
   Avery Hopwood and Charlton Andrews collaborated on this three-act farce, also billed as Ladies' Night in a Turkish Bath, which opened on 9 August 1920 at the Eltinge Theatre and was produced by A. H. Woods for 360 performances. In an effort to loosen him up, friends take painfully shy Jimmy Walters to an artists' ball. All goes well until a police raid. Jimmy escapes, but his only route is through the window of a nearby Turkish bath, where it happens to be "ladies-only" night. Jimmy and his friends are forced into drag and go through many other subterfuges until they are able to end the charade. Remarkably durable, Ladies' Night was revived on Broadway in 1950 and off-Broadway* in 1961 and has had innumerable stock, touring, and amateur productions.
