Book: Herbert Fields
Music: Richard Rodgers
Lyrics: Lorenz Hart
Adaptation and Direction: Ben West

A 75-minute adaptation of the hit 1926 musical, complete with sound effects, musical arrangements, and tap dance specialties. Set almost entirely within a series of dazzling Freudian dreams, the frothy delight follows a young Peggy Barnes as she journeys after the love of her life, and finds herself swept up in the lights of Broadway, the unusually high seas, and the steamy clubs of Havana.
