In this effervescent musical comedy, a stuffy college professor secretly works as a burlesque comedian during the summer. He, a professor of Shakespeare, manages to keep his secret, until a stripper shows up and threatens to blow his cover unless he gives her a starring role in his latest production of The Taming of the Shrew. He does, but the rest of the cast is so appalled they walk-off. In desperation, the professor begins hiring the stripper's colleagues and this creates all sorts of tuneful fun. Songs include: "Who Took Me Home Last Night?" "Mess Me Up," "Casanova Joe", "Five-A-Day Fatima," "Willie the Shake," and "Taming of the Shrew."
