La Dama Boba is a very fast and funny comedy about a pair of sisters on the verge of marriage. Their father is ready, willing, and able to pair this pair with the best bridegrooms that money can buy – he’s allocated 50,000 ducats for his daughters’ dowry. The sisters themselves are famous beauties, everything the most exacting eye could want. The sticking point? Elder sister Finea is notoriously slow (a boba), while younger sister Nise is if anything too intellectually swift. Nise can’t marry till Finea’s matched. And Nise has a whole troop of gallants-in-waiting. Can the family brighten up their boba enough to fool a bridegroom?
Una entretenida comedia acerca de dos hermosas hermanas en edad de casarse; la menor, Nise es inteligente y recatada, la mayor, Finea, es torpe e insegura. Nise no puede casarse antes que Finea, quien tiene una dote mucho mayor que su intectual hermana. Los galanes y enredos son muchos pero ¿Quién esta enamorado verdaderamente y quién esta solo interesado en la fortuna de las hermanas?
