In the glorious tradition of "Some Like It Hot" and " Tootsie", the farcical "Nobody's Perfect" shows what happens when a mild-mannered statistician adopts a female pseudonym so he can submit his novel to a feminist writing competition ... and proceeds to win first prize. Determined to hide his true identity, protagonist Leonard Loftus plays his womanly alter-ego, the carefree Lulabelle Latiffa, to the hilt. But things get complicated in this production at Dallas' Pocket Sandwich Theatre when he falls in love with the head of the publishing company, Harriet Copeland. Throw in Loftus' wayward daughter and his irascible old father, and the result is a tangled web of cross-dressing cross-purposes that the "Birmingham Post" said "bristles with sharply funny one-liners."
