A speakeasy, class confrontation, mismatched lovers and a romantic opera singer set the stage for an early Preston Sturges comedy. The king of movie screwballs, Sturges' 1929 Strictly Dishonorable, now off-Broadway at The Flea, is a sweet production that still speaks to contemporary audiences.

Before he began writing as well as directing his celebrated movies, Preston Sturges uncorked Strictly Dishonorable, a hit Broadway show. It was such a click that although it opened a little more than a month before the October 1929 stock market crash, it ran until January 1931.
