When it first premiered, the songs of Me and My Girl were so enchanting they managed to distract Londoners from the growing threat of war with Nazi Germany. More than seven decades later, this old-fashioned musical comedy still radiates dazzling amounts of charm. Non-stop tomfoolery unfolds as a Cockney lad attempts to inherit the title and fortune of an aristocratic ancestor, the Earl of Hereford. Many of the musical's energetic, lilting songs have become standards, including "The Lambeth Walk," "Leaning On a Lamppost" and "Me and My Girl." After acclaimed revivals in London and New York, Glendale Centre Theatre presents an all-new production of this musical theater treasure. Learn More

What a perfect way to learn more about the life of this American legend!
Great music, costumes, choreography and so well executed by an excellent cast. Danny Michaels' performance was incredible. We might even take friends and go back for a second time.
Highly recommend this one!
Also, Kim (Theater House Manager that night) was welcoming and hospitable. She made the experience even more special.
Will Rogers is famous for saying "I never met a man I didn't like," and anyone who has ever seen or performed in Will Rogers Follies will agree that there has never been a man-or woman-who did not like it.
Subtitled "A Life In Revue," Will Rogers Follies stands out among musicals because of the magic of its protagonist. Rare is the man who transcends decades and rises to the level of legend. Will Rogers does this not only because of his accomplishments, but because of his philosophy, which espouses respect and confidence in the goodness of his fellowman.
Will Rogers was a unique American who, though he died almost sixty years ago, remains a beloved figure remembered for his humor, his wisdom, and his just plain common sense. At the heart of his populist philosophy was his most famous statement: "I never met a man I didn't like." Rogers became the biggest, most popular, and highest paid star of every existing medium of his time--stage, screen, radio, newspapers, and public appearances. In fact, it is no exaggeration to say that he was the greatest star this country has ever produced.
