    The heart of this third marvelous book of the His Majesty's Theatre series is the rough kidnapping of the young heiress Elly who has run away from forced marriage to a disgusting man (who is of course marrying her for her fortune) and the race to find her.

Among the many engaging characters is a newspaper reporter so feisty, stubborn and caring you want to take him home. I was holding my breath in some scenes and felt pretty melted by tenderness in others by the unfailing camaraderie of the actors when in the end they look out for each other….and against all probabilities and intrigue and murder, the play somehow goes on. Lovely!
