1939. It was said that no man could resist the charm and appeal of secret agent Betty Pack, and that no secret was safe when unsuspecting lovers whispered in her ear, lying helpless in her embrace. Born in Minneapolis, Betty was introduced by her parents to the Washington social scene. Immersed in the world of diplomatic intrigue as a teenager, she married Arthur Pack in 1930, a British diplomat twice her age, but their marriage quickly began to crumble. With fascism on the rise and Nazi appeasement gaining steam on both sides of the pond, Betty’s insatiable desire and fierce intellect would lead her into a series of secret encounters around the globe, and ultimately involve her in a relentless war against the Nazis—one lover at a time. An epic tale of the glamorous Betty Pack, the British spy mistress Vera Atkins, American code breaker Elizebeth Friedman, celebrated performer Josephine Baker and an army of Mutual Friends, all working in the shadows to resist the rising threat of the fifth column of the Third Reich and change the course of WWII. A passionate new musical that is filled with intrigue, deception and intelligence not to be missed.
