WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Bobby's a New Yorker who wants to be a musical star, but instead is a banker. His domineering mother sends him out to Deadrock, Nevada to foreclose on the mortgaged Gaiety Theatre (This takes place some time before Las Vegas becomes a resort mecca). Deadrock is a dusty cowboy town that's seen better days (Why do you think they call it Deadrock?). Once he arrives, he promptly falls head over heels for the theatre owner's lovely daughter, who despises him because he's the banker. Devising a plan to win her heart, he disguises himself as Zangler, the famous Broadway producer, come to Deadrock to put on a big musical to revive and save the endangered theatre, returning gaiety to The Gaiety. There are obstacles, as he's followed to Deadrock by his New York fiancée (whom he doesn't love), his mother, and the real Zangler. Can Bobby possibly pull off his scheme, producing and starring in a great musical, fending off the bank, and realizing his fondest dream of true and everlasting love with the beautiful Polly? (Hint: This is a musical comedy.) This one's got it all: Leggy showgirls, singing cowboys, dancing, romance, and the great songs of the Gershwins, including "Nice Work If You Can Get It," "Embraceable You," "Someone to Watch Over Me," "They Can't Take That Away From Me," "I Got Rhythm," "Shall We Dance?" and many, many more. As a line from two of the songs states, "Who could ask for anything more?"
