Hollywood Pinafore or The Lad Who Loved A Salary Comedy/Satire View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

Originally presented on Broadway in the spring of 1945, and directed by George S. Kaufman himself, HOLLYWOOD PINAFORE has never before been published in its entirety—until now. With loving respect for what makes Gilbert and Sullivan's H.M.S. Pinafore a masterpiece, Kaufman's dazzling lyric writing transplants the maritime world of the original Pinafore to the Californian milieu he knows best: the glamorous world of Hollywood film making. And all the while, he's kept Sir Arthur Sullivan's charming score intact, complete with all the favourites you remember from the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta.

Synopsis

HOMEMADE FUSION, a series of musical snapshots from the imaginations of Kooman and Dimond. Each snapshot attempts to make sense of an increasingly senseless world by examining the paradox of modern times. At once dangerously cynical and desperately romantic, it is a tale of love, loss, and candy bars.

Made up of clever solos and duets, each tells a strong story, whether it be a poignant ballad or a risqué comic number. Songs deal with being true to oneself, chocoholics, misinterpreting signals and how Lucy’s laugh can drive you insane.

The normally pleasant routine of their lives having been disrupted by the privations of the Civil War, the four March sisters are drawn even more closely together by the absence of their father and the need to help their mother maintain their home.

Meanwhile Amy is treated to a European trip by their rich Aunt March and, while abroad, develops an ever-deepening attachment for Laurie, who is studying there. When they return it is to be married, leaving Jo with only the memory of her lost love to solace her.
