Musical




Overview


Synopsis

The show concerns a group of senior citizens living on New York's Upper West Side who learn that the long-term hotel they live in will be sold off to developers - making the seniors homeless. To save the hotel, the seniors form a ring of unlikely thieves, wreaking havoc in stores from Sadies' Second Hand Furs to Bloomingdales. In the process, they regain their zest for life. The seniors proceed to use their ill-gotten gains to spruce up their digs and to provide safe harbor for other poor seniors. The musical is based on the 1960 British film 'Make Mine Mink' and its antecedent, Peter Coke's 1958 London stage comedy, Breath of Spring.
