In a cheap motel room, an embezzling mayor is supposed to meet with his female accountant, while in the room next-door, two undercover cops wait to catch the meeting on videotape.

For Frank, Charlie, and Mary, their lives are all ahead of them—or rather, behind them—in this cleverly conceived musical by Stephen Sondheim and George Furth.
