The Day They Kidnapped the Pope
The Day They Kidnapped the Pope
By Joao Bethencourt.

Cast: 5m., 2w. (Extras.) This startling comedy has proven a smash hit in Europe with major productions in Germany, France, Spain and Holland. When it was presented in Rome, the Vatican newspaper gave it a rave review. The improbable events become momentarily believable in the magic of the theatre. On a visit to New York, the Pope comes out of St. Patrick's Cathedral and, confused by a thunderstorm, gets into a taxi. The driver, Sam Leibowitz, kidnaps him and takes him to his Brooklyn apartment where he holds him for a special ransom—a day of world peace. The Leibowitz family is stunned by this act and Sam's bewildered wife fixes a lunch, saying, "Call the children; call the Pope." As the excitement builds outside, an enchanting play develops inside that is sure to delight your audience. One divided set.
