Six-time Emmy award winner Bruce Vilanch stars in the double role of Louis Blore and Louis XV. This saucy Cole Porter Broadway smash has never had a full production since its original run! Nightclub washroom attendant Louis Blore wins big in the Irish Sweepstakes and tries to buy happiness. When hhis plans misfire, his dreams transport him to 18th-century France, where he imagines himself King Louis XV with a lovely, lively and troublesome mistress, Madame Du Barry.
