Music by Richard Rodgers, Lyrics by Lorenz Hart
Based on the Mark Twain novel, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court
First mounted in 1927, then revived in 1943, “A Connecticut Yankee” contains the last song ever written by Rodgers & Hart (the deadly funny “To Keep My Love Alive”). It’s the story of Martin, a Connecticut resident, who’s knocked out and sent back in time to Camelot when his fiancée hits him on the head with a champagne bottle. After outwitting a sorceress and winning his true bride, Martin returns to the 20th century for a happy ending, but not before singing such rousing classics as “My Heart Stood Still” and “Thou Swell”. “So many fetching songs”, said Alexander Woolcott.
