Product Description
2-CDs with 20 songs and dialog from the Comic Opera Guild's 2005 performance of Oh, Boy!, considered the best and the most popular of the Princess musicals, with 463 Broadway performances, after its opening in 1917. It is not to be missed by anyone with affection for American vernacular musical theater. Kern's Princess Theater musicals, written mostly in collaboration with Guy Bolton (book) and P. G. Wodehouse (lyrics)established this team, Kern in particular, as the young lions of musical comedy. They posed an alternative to the lavish, Ziegfeld- style revues of the day, with intimate shows that placed an emphasis on real plots and characters. Most of all, they are worth reviving because they are so wonderfully good. The tunes are constantly delightful and the charm, nonstop.

Songs include:
Act I
Let's Make a Night of It
You Never Knew About Me
A Package of Seeds
An Old-Fashioned Wife
A Pal Like You
Till the Clouds Roll By
A Little Bit of Ribbon
The First Day of May
Act II
Rolled into One
Oh, Daddy, Please!

Words Are Not Needed
Flubby Dub, the Cave-Man
