Featuring a tuneful score by Tony winning songwriters Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Ragtime, Seussical), this wonderfully tender adaptation of the hit Peter O’Toole film is classic musical comedy. Originally opening on Broadway in 1993, the musical is set in New York City in 1954. A writer’s assistant named Benjy Stone works for a TV comedy show titled The King Kaiser Comedy Cavalcade. When veteran Hollywood actor Alan Swann is scheduled to do a live guest appearance on the show, Benjy is given the task of baby-sitting Swann. This massive task means that Benjy must keep Swann away from his love for alcohol and women, and nearly gets Benjy fired. But when Benjy gets an unexpected glimpse at Swann’s broken heart, he begins to learn lessons about life and love that he never expected.
