Jewel Thieves  | Open: 09/19/07 Close: 10/07/07
Reminiscent of the great screwball film comedies of the 1930's, JEWEL THIEVES adds a clever note of suspense to the laugh-inducing plot twists that are brought to rich life by Norman Beim's extremely witty dialogue. A mysterious stranger is invited into the elegant country home of aging film legend Gloria Desmond, where he encounters a lovely young countess and a substitute butler. But is anyone really who they claim to be, especially when their names are Alfred, Lynne and Harold Busby? Or is it Busby Harold? The intrigue builds as their attention focuses on Gloria's precious jewel, the legendary Mandarin necklace.

The Valley Press called the Santa Cruz production of JEWEL THIEVES "A glittering feast...a hilarious ride to what becomes a full fledged mystery." JEWEL THIEVES features a stellar cast with Broadway veteran Gerrianne Raphael, Davis Hall, Marnie Klar and Adam Raynen.
