What Is the Story of Cactus Flower?
As Cactus Flower begins, a kooky young Greenwich Village record store clerk named Toni is considering drastic action to end her relationship with her older, married boyfriend, dentist Julian Winston. A jolted Dr. Winston proposes, but there’s one problem: Toni wants to meet his wife, but he isn’t actually married. (The fake spouse helped keep previous girlfriends at bay.) Julian impulsively taps his no-nonsense office assistant, Stephanie, to pose as his wife, meet Toni and pave the way for a quickie “divorce.” Predictably, comic complications ensue—including a budding attraction between Julian and Stephanie.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Cactus Flower Like?
This light and funny farce by Abe Burrows has a swinging sixties vibe, with period sets and mod costumes and a sometimes retro view of love and marriage. The irresistible plotline (recycled in the recent Adam Sandler/Jennifer Aniston comedy Just Go With It) and witty banter makes audiences root for all three main characters to find happiness.

Is Cactus Flower Good for Kids?
Although the dialogue is equivalent to a sixties-style network sitcom, Cactus Flower centers on sexual situations that aren’t appropriate for kids.
