These wickedly funny plays, originally done off-Broadway and then on Broadway during the season, have been reworked by McNally and resurrected with gleeful abandon by the Manhattan Theater Club and a fine company of actors. Pepper - allows his patients, mostly married couples, free rein. A vulgar pair of loud- mouth actors named Roy and April Pitt - also known as the Pitts - battle each other as well as other patients and the staff.

Mousy Dolly Scupp hobbles in to visit her husband Harry who shaved off two of her toes with an out-of- control lawnmower. And then there is a gay couple, Hiram and Francis, whose continual arguments rehash the defenestration death of their Welsh corgi. Out of such nonsense, McNally spins a zany story that only rarely lets up. Run by a Dr. Toynbee, who spouts comforting gibberish, the sanitarium sedates its patients, especially when their idiosyncrasies threaten to overwhelm the place.

Director Paul Benedict, who acted in the original productions, marshalls his actors as if he were conducting a fire drill. And he coaxed some wonderful performances out of the actors, particularly Kate Nelligan, Faith Prince and the moon-faced Nathan Lane.

The man could single-handedly bring back baggy-pants burlesque humor. Prince, with her Minnie Mouse voice and Betty Boop eyes, is endearing. Nelligan gets to show the widest range of acting.
