This heart-warming comedy from the 30s was a forgotten gem until it was rediscovered in 1980 by a Broadway production that was the surprise smash of the year.  It is a true ensemble piece with all 9 parts contributing to the storyline in a significant way.  The action revolves around 4 sisters who live all-too-near one another in small town America.
