A Connecticut Yankee circa 1943
A jive-talk, wartime update of the 1927 classic. Music by Richard Rodgers and lyrics by Lorenz Hart. Book by Herbert Fields and staged by John C. Wilson. Featuring dancer Vera-Ellen. The show was the last by Lorenz Hart, who was ejected for being drunk and disorderly from the opening night performance, dying a few weeks later from pneumonia. The production reprised the old standards, "My Heart Stood Still" and "Thou Swell", and introduced a new show-stopping number, "To Keep My Love Alive", which was added for Vivienne Segal, fresh from her Broadway run in the hit, Pal Joey.
