Encores! brings this delightfully old-fashioned musical comedy to New York for the first time in nearly 30 years, in a new staging starring Christian Borle ('Peter and the Starcatcher') and Laura Michelle Kelly ('Mary Poppins'). More…
The toast of the 1937 London season, 'Me and My Girl' centers around Cockney everyman Bill Snibson (Christian Borle) who, after being unexpectedly elevated to the lofty position of Earl of Hareford, wreaks havoc on high society and risks losing his girl, Sally Smith (Laura Michelle Kelly). Part music hall frolic, part class-warfare comedy, 'Me and My Girl' features an infectious score by Noel Gay, which includes popular songs like "Leaning on a Lamp Post" and "The Lambeth Walk" - the famous first act finale that launched a worldwide dance craze.
