WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Irma la Douce tells the story of an impoverished law student, Nestor le Fripé, who falls in love with a prostitute, Irma la Douce, and becomes her protector and dependent. Through jealousy of her clients he disguises himself as a rich older man who visits and pays Irma for conversation and becomes her only client. Nestor becomes exhausted with working hard enough to make enough money to support Irma and decides that the only way out of his mess is to destroy his alter ego. The musical features music by Marguerite Monnot and English book and lyrics by Julian More, David Heneker & Monty Norman based on the original French book & lyrics by Alexandre Breffort.
