Theatre Three presents So Help Me God!, a deliciously sour farce that provides the same startled pleasure that comes from discovering a juicy, pre-code Hollywood film when immoralities used to go un-punished in the final reel. The playwright is now best remembered for Roxy Heart, her play adapted into the musical, Chicago.
So Help Me God! is a backstage story of a back-stabbing diva that makes other theatre satires of the era look like fluffy marshmallows. Derailed from the road to Broadway by the stock market crash of 1929, the re-discovered farce portrays a Broadway where commercialism always trumps art, producers pander to an audience’s lowest intelligence and stars get away with absolutely everything – because they’re famous, damn it!
