The Show

Joe and Jerry, two unemployed musicians in 1929 Chicago, inadvertently witness a gangland
massacre. The only way out of town is to shave their legs, put on wigs, and join an all-female band heading for Miami. Joe/Josephine falls in love with the gorgeous blonde singer, Sugar. Meanwhile, Jerry/Daphne tries to avoid the advances from millionaire Osgood Fielding. But when the ruthless Chicago gangsters arrive in Miami, the boys … girls? … have to run for their lives!
