Winner! Outer Critics Circle Best New Musical Award
A long-running hit Off Broadway that brought stardom to Bernadette Peters, this campy show is based on the nostalgia of Hollywood musicals of the '30s. It's big-time New York, into which sweet little Ruby from faraway Hometown, U.S.A. has come to make it big on Broadway. Who should she chance to meet but another boy from Hometown, U.S.A.: Dick, a sailor, who also has ambitions as a songwriter. Ruby begins in the chorus, and by the end of the day, in true Hollywood fashion, Dick saves her doomed Broadway show with a smash tune, as Ruby becomes a star on the deck of a battleship, which just happens to be passing by. Selected as "Best Musical of the Year" by Time, Newsweek, and the Outer Critics Circle.
