Synopsis

In Cy Coleman, Carolyn Leigh and Neil Simon's musical version of Patrick Dennis' satirical novel, a well-endowed but poor girl rises to the top ranks of movie stardom thanks to all the men she encounters, but remains ever in love (as much as she is capable) with the hometown rich kid from the other side of the tracks.
