"The show has been called both liberating and lurid, but how about literate and loving as well," said director Frank Pierson. "It's about something and it's playful. And it's going to be fun." Pierson added, "The writing is terrific, the actresses are terrific, so I'll have to be terrific. That's a challenge worth taking."
