The Medicine Show Theatre presents this revival of a 1923 comic musical about the fashion industry that parodies love stories, business and advertising.
Helen of Troy New York is a comic 1923 musical written by George S. Kaufman and Marc Connelly, with music by Bert Kalmar and Harry Ruby. It mocks business, advertising, and the traditional love story. The cast moves from Troy, NY, the home of the stiff collar industry and NY City, the home of Art Deco and Very High Fashion. Everyone's in love with the wrong one and ends up with the right one (except for the bad guy) and business ethics are improved (it's a fantasy).
