What happens when one man juggles three ladies? If youre a follower of polygamist leader Warren Jeffs, you supposedly get in good with the Heavenly Father. More likely, youll just end up with a frantic schedule and an empty wallet.

And while Boeing Boeing was penned in the swingin sixties, were guessing the popularity of Ashley Madison and the reality TV series Cheaters have just a little to do with the plays modern appeal.
