OA1035: The Gingham Girl

$15.00

THE GINGHAM GIRL

by Albert von Tilzer
 
The Gingham Girl, by the composer of “Take Me Out to The Ball Game,”  opened on Broadway in August of 1922 and became the year’s longest-running book musical, exceeding runs of shows by Gershwin, Kern, Herbert, Romberg, Friml, Tierney, Berlin, and Cohan.  The New York Times captured the show’s essence: “Here is a native little story that is almost pathetic in its simplicity, nor can it be said that there are extraordinary talents among its interpreters.  And yet out of it someone has made a lively and entertaining musical comedy—certainly a far more entertaining one than anybody had a right to expect.”
