Kind Words for Ken Ludwig's
play Leading Ladies

"Leading Ladies is a highly combustible and continuously hilarious new comedy by Ken Ludwig, Broadway's reigning comic writer."

— The Cleveland Plain Dealer


" Set in 1958, it's an old-fashioned play, reminiscent of a Noel Coward comedy. There are also large splashes of Some Like It Hot, The Foreigner Charley's Aunt and Twelfth Night in this cocktail."

— Laurie Anderson
The Free Lance-Star Publishing Company

"Ken Ludwig gives the audience something powerful and potent: laughter and a guiltless evening of Theatre-going."

— Village News

"Ludwig’s newest comedy is so funny, it will make sophisticated and reasonable men and women of the 21st century cackle till their faces hurt."

— Houston Press

Leading Ladies

Review: "Cross-dressing comedy 'Leading Ladies' a hoot in Gloucester"

"Want a sure-fire laugh? Put a couple brawny guys in heels and dresses and watch them try to prance around. Gender misdirection works every time, as it does so well in Ken Ludwig’s "Leading Ladies," which the Cape Ann Theatre Collaborative opened at the Groton Theatre ... Opening night of "Leading Ladies" showed that this will be another successful run."

Dave Rich and Ben Reed - Leading Ladies
Directed by Pauline Micelli
"Forget love --
what the world needs now is laughs.
That's clearly the creed of playwright Ken Ludwig.
He supplies plenty in his comedy, Leading Ladies."
