Musicals Tonight! revives George and Ira Gershwin's 1927 musical comedy. Note: The plot is totally different from the 1957 movie musical of the same name. More…

Jimmy Reeve is the legal guardian of three pretty sisters: Dora, June, and Frankie. He keeps their prized possessions in his safe, including June's pearl necklace and Frankie's diary. Since the diary contains incriminating information about Frankie, he convinces aviator Peter to steal it. But somehow, Peter manages to take the pearls instead, setting off a merry chase. To complicate matters, two bumbling burglars, Herbert and Dugsie, get swept up in the criminal chaos. Filled with classic Gershwin tunes including "'S Wonderful," "He Loves and She Loves," "My One and Only," and the title song.
