Babes in Arms (Oppenheimer Version)

Schrijvers: George Oppenheimer, Lorenz Hart
Componist: Richard Rodgers

This quintessential ‘Hey, kids, let’s put on a show!’ musical boasts one of the greatest scores ever written. Set at a summer stock theatre, the plot concerns a group of young apprentices and their conviction to mount the original revue they’ve created while dodging the underhanded attempts of the surly theatre owner to squash their efforts at every turn. Further complications are provided by the overbearing stage mother of a beautiful ex-child star and the inflated ego of a hack southern playwright. But of course the show must go on, and so it does in a resolution of comeuppance, reconciliation and romance.

This version is the 1959 adaptation by George Oppenheimer. The Original 1937 version is also available. Please specify which version you would like when ordering.
