Magic Of Pants, The

Synopsis:
In this zany, modern-day commedia play, Pantalone's daughter, Maria, and her servant, Eliza, dream of opening a fashion house. Visiting rock star Rey (Elvis) falls in love with Maria, who believes that Silvestro, regardless of his stinky cheese problem, is working up the courage to propose to her. Nothing could be further from the truth, but what does that matter in a world out of time and place? The Magic of Pants parodies fame, modern technology, greed, and high fashion with lots of fun and physical schtick.
