The rehearsal for the original Broadway show starring Bea Lillie, Bert Lahr, and Anton Dolen. Music and lyrics by Cole Porter, with performances by Benny Goodman. Salvador Dali created paintings for the show and Igor Stravinsky composed a ballet. The revue about young people coming to New York seeking the arts was considered a flop after 183 performances. To put on the show, Billy Rose spared no expense to restore the Ziegfeld from a second run movie house to a premiere theatre.
