Irving Berlin, Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse’s classic 1950 Tony-winning musical comedy about love and diplomacy returns to London, headlined by West End musical star and Olivier nominee Rosemary Ashe and ‘Allo, ‘Allo’! star Richard Gibson. Sally Adams, the unconventional ‘queen of Washington society’, is appointed US ambassador to the tiny Grand Duchy of Lichtenburg. She’s intent on refusing to shore up that country’s finances with American money. That is, until she meets Cosmo Constantine, the Lichtenburg foreign minister, and finds his charms irresistible. Political chaos ensues, not helped by the budding romance between Sally’s aide, Kenneth, and Princess Maria, heiress to the Lichtenburg throne. Can anyone’s career and romantic ambitions survive? Berlin’s score features the hit songs ‘It’s a Lovely Day Today’ and ‘You’re Just in Love’, and Lindsay and Crouse’s book sparkles with political satire.
