In Margot and Max's latest adventure, THE FAT LADY SINGS, things aren t what they appear to be. But since they work in the film world of make-believe, when are things ever clear-cut and unambiguous? In THE FAT LADY SINGS, the couple is caught up in a lethal scheme of connivance, complicity, and murder perpetrated behind the heavy velvet curtains of a reparatory company determined to win an international prize. Heads roll as egos, reputations, and aspirations clash against the dulcet harmonies and satiric comments of a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta.
