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.
