Book and lyrics by L. Arthur Rose and Douglas Furber
Book revised by Stephen Fry, with contributions by Mike Ockrent
Music by Noel Gay
Directed and Choreographed by Lee Ann Payne
Set in the late 1930s, this classic musical comedy tells the story of an unapologetically unrefined cockney named Bill Snibson, who learns he is the 14th heir to the Earl of Hareford when he is summoned to the late earl’s estate to assume his destiny as a nobleman. But Bill will have none of it, especially since it involves ditching the equally unrefined love of his life, Sally. Filled with memorable tunes like “The Lambeth Walk” and “The Sun Has Got His Hat On”, this energetic Tony Award winning musical ran for 3 years on Broadway and 8 years in the West End.
