BABES IN ARMS
This quintessential “Hey, kids, let's put on a show!” musical boasts one of the greatest scores ever written, including beloved songs such as “Where or When,” “My Funny Valentine,” “The Lady is a Tramp,” and “Johnny One Note.”
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.
