WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Come Summer has a book and lyrics by Will Holt and music by David Baker, and opened on March 18, 1969 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre starring, Ray Bolger (his final Broadway production) and Margaret Hamilton. It was directed by Agnes De Mille (her final Broadway production). It's New England in 1840 when towns were visited by itinerant peddlers, painters and the like – long on charm but short on responsibility to those women they practiced their charm on. Songs include "Think Spring", "Skin and Bones", "Wild Birds Calling", "Goodbye, My Bachelor", "Good Time Charlie", and "Fine, Thank You, Fine".
