Mr. 80%, written by James Sherman, is being directed by Jo-Ann Vaughn, her 14th show. Sharon a no-nonsense attorney, and her roommate, Patricia, who is doing her medical residency, advertise for a roommate to help pay the rent of their New York apartment. After a sour experience with Sharon's former live-in boyfriend, the two decide to place an ad and specify either another woman or a gay male only. Seeing the ad, and desperate for an apartment, Sam, a struggling young comic, who, with his partner, Jan, decide to pose as a homosexual couple in hopes of getting the apartment. The fact that Sharon and Patricia are taken in by the ruse leads to a series of hilarious misunderstandings, made even funnier by the swishy high-jinks of the two attractive and decidedly heterosexual young men. This show is filled with inventiveness, nonstop hilarity and, in the end, a redeeming touch of genuine warmth and humanity.
