Battling through a complicated web of malapropisms, misconstrued innuendoes, and good intentions, Virginia State Police Superintendent Judy Hammer and her faithful lieutenant, Andy Brazil, try to stop a series of brutal murders and rescue the governor from his own sleazy press secretary. Michele Hall may mispronounce a NASCAR name or two, but her comic delivery is flawless, and put to constant use in this story. Hall gives us ditzy do-gooders, foggy seniors, tattling toll collectors, and first family foibles with equal skill and fun. Even a seeing-eye horse comes to life under her skilled interpretation of an unskilled attempt to direct him. Throw in a bizarre dialect from a nearly forgotten island whose people have kidnapped their own dentist, and you have a production too funny to miss. R.P.L.
