ABRACADABRA ALAKAZAM is a delightfully wicked, two-part comic mystery caper revolving around an alluring but unpredictable heroine named Glenna Flanning, and the two young men who enter her life, twenty-one years apart.
The first of the two offbeat adventures starts on a stormy New York night in May of 1955, when a series of best intentions gone haywire indirectly change the lives of numerous people. Moving speedily to the muggy Gulf Coast of Louisiana and Texas, a young neophyte dancer with an overpowering dream, Peter Stanton, is soon to be the first affected, when he’s introduced to zany Glenna during her brief stopover in Gulfport, Mississippi. It’s only a matter of time before the provocative redhead persuades him to accompany her, on her wacky trip to Hollywood . . . where she’s at long last bound with a studio player’s contact in one hand, and an energetic, giant white poodle in the other.
The second mysterious escapade, constituting a series of misfortunes, revisits the same locale at the same time of the year, but earlier during the Depression in 1934. Jonathon Conway, a man with a secret, returning to Houston on a family emergency, soon must orchestrate the greatest act of prestidigitation he will ever be called upon to perform. And he knows nothing about magic ... until an enticing hoyden, named Glenna, accidentally tumbles into his life.
Put Roxy Hart, Sally Bowles, Mame Dennis and Holly Golightly aside. After meeting the unique and irresistible Glenna Flanning, magic has a new meaning.
