Additional Info

This is a rollicking version of the Boucicault classic about an evil banker and a pure and deprived heroine embellished with exciting musical accents. To cover his embezzlements the banker steals the ship captain's fortune, leaving the captain's widow and daughter to brave the cruel world as best they can. The equally destitute hero is forced to become engaged to the banker's villainous daughter. Then comes the foreclosure by the heartless banker; the splendidly nostalgic Christmas scene where the poor huddle in the snow, and the heroine laments the loss of her job; and finally the big fire, the reversal of fortunes, and the triumph of virtue. A deliciously idealized era, with excellent lyrics and musical originality.
