Commentaires : Originally produced in New York April 1937 it was a show with a large cast of teenagers, no stars and modest scenery. It also offered a larger collection of Rodgers & Hart hit songs than any other of their shows. It was a very profitable hit in the USA. However, it waited over 40 years before this, its British premiere. The book was re-written by George Oppenheimer, changing most of the character names and re-arranging the order of some of the scenes. A number of performers whose names were announced in the pre-publicity never actually appeared - though no reason was ever given - and the production itself was roundly condemned for its “stunning awfulness and inanity”. The cast fared no better, described as “universally unable to sing, dance, act or even move on stage with any semblance of adequacy.”
