George S. Kaufman and Marc Connelly collaborated on this hit comedy based on a character created by humorist Franklin P. Adams. Dulcy, the first of their eight collaborations, opened on 13 August 1921, produced by George C. Tyler and H. H. Frazee, running for 246 performances at Frazee's Theatre, making a Broadway star of Lynn Fontanne in the title role. Dulcy Smith is a scatterbrained busybody who causes problems for her husband, Gordon, when she plans a weekend gathering to help him in his business. Meddling in various relationships, Dulcy's interference nearly causes disaster, but through a series of revelations all works out well in the end and Dulcy half-heartedly promises Gordon she will never interfere in his affairs again. Motion picture versions appeared in 1923 and 1940.
