Musical (1916)

Musique: Cole Porter
Paroles: Cole Porter
Livret: T. Lawrason Riggs
Production à la création:

Wealthy East Coast Senator Huggins sends his daughter Polly out west to a "back-to-nature" finishing school in hope that she'll find a "real man" for a husband. Polly, however, has designs on a Duke with whom she once exchanged glances at the opera in London. The Duke turns up on the western scene disguised as a cowboy, and after a few musical numbers, he and Polly decide to get hitched. Happily, Polly's father forgoes his rigid doctrines when he falls in love with Sarah, the provincial chaperone at Polly's school.
