Written in the fifties as “a new musical of the twenties,” 'The Boy Friend' is a witty send-up musicals, and is filled to the brim with catchy tunes, tongue-in-cheek moments, and cheerful dance numbers. 'The Boy Friend' tells the story of English heiress, Polly, who is longing for only one thing: a boy friend. Polly’s father, convinced that any boy who isn’t wealthy will court Polly strictly for her financial situation, forbids her to engage any potential suitors. Honoring his wishes, Polly explains to Tony, the messenger boy with whom she’s fallen in love, that she is no rich girl. This is just the tip of a mistaken identity iceberg, as love proceeds to find its way charmingly through nearly every member of the cast and bring them all to a happy ending.

See it if You enjoy an old fashioned 1920s musical with lovely songs, great costumes, a good & peppy cast, decent choreography and production values.

Don't see it if You don't like fluff, would be disappointed in a lead actor who can't sing, aren't into musicals, or are a curmudgeon in every way.
