Subtitled Gentlemen Still Prefer Blondes, LORELEI is a sequel to the famous show about Lorelei Lee, who is now a very wealthy widow. Lorelei is about to set sail on the SS Ile de France when she is reminded of a past voyage she took with her best friend and fellow showgirl Dorothy Shaw. In a flashback we relive their madcap adventures after Lorelei’s plans to marry Gus Esmond are derailed by his father and the two women sail from New York City to Paris and settle in at the Hôtel Ritz.
