This grand old (1938) musical was revived in London in 1984 and came to New York in 1986. The late Viscount Hareford had a youthful, unfortunate marriage – and kept discreetly out of sight was a son and heir. The Hareford Hall set are despondent when the family solicitor finds the legitimate heir in the less than desirable Lambeth area of London.
