Schultz by J.P. Donleavy

Schultz – Sigmund Franz “Isadorable” Schultz – descended from a long line of Prague Rabbis, born in the New England boondocks, fleeing an obscure furture in ladies’ lingerie and determined to make it as a knock-their-socks-off theatrical impresario in London’s West End.
Long before the official premiere, he will host a slew of opening nights featuring the likes of Agnes, Greta and Lady Lulu – ladies all too eager to impress their talents on Schultz and his aristocratic English “angels” – and find himself veering wildly from misfortune to disaster in his exuberant pursuit of erotic adventure, fabulous box-office riches and – do you believe it? – true love!
