Rodgers And Hart's classic 1937 musical gets a revival

Continuing their commitment to producing revivals of rarely produced musicals, All Star Productions are proud to announce the first UK staging in almost 15 years of the original version of Babes In Arms. A group of teenagers are left without adult supervision when their folks hit the vaudeville summer circuit, and the local sheriff is determined to send the loafers to a work farm. But the determined kids talk the sheriff into a two week reprieve, just enough time to produce their own show and prove their mettle. what follows is a story about race, comeuppance, reconciliation and romance. The old-fashioned virtues of a '30s musical comedy are peppered with socio-political issues which have remained resonant for more than seven decades. The dazzling score by Rodgers And Hart features many of their most popular songs including My Funny Valentine, The Lady Is A Tramp, Where Or When and Johnny One Note. Children under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Valid ID may be required.
