That is an interesting point, larry13. I think I saw many plays in this category with stars of one magnitude or another in the heyday of summerstock (circa 1970s). The word I'd use to describe them is servicable. Literally, to serve the appearance of a paticular actor, in this case Hepburn. For some reason, I'm vaguely remembering something with Straw Hat in the title starring Shirley Booth in this category. Also, Natural Ingredients with Eve Arden and her husband Brooks West. I was an apprentice backstage at the Cape Playhouse for that one so I remember it a bit more vividly. At any rate, all of these shows were billed in their summer tours as "pre-Broadway!", but, although entertaining enough, they were merely servicable and never arrived. West Side Waltz was obviously a step above these, but just by a little.
