Get there early. Parking is a nightmare due to the number of shows now playing.

Description

When times are tough and smiles are hard to come by, it’s good to know there’s still one escape where you can find an easy laugh, a pretty girl, and maybe even fall in love.

Writer Bob Martin and Director/Choreographer Casey Nicholaw  (both of The Drowsy Chaperone fame) join forces with the legendary composer  Charles Strouse (Bye Bye Birdie, Applause, Annie_) and acclaimed lyricist Susan  Birkenhead (_Jelly’s Last Jam) for this world premiere.
