WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Fanny is set in Marseille and features one of Broadway's greatest love stories - a tale of a young girl's (Elena Shaddow) passion for a young man so in love with the sea that he leaves her, little realizing that she is pregnant with his child. Her marriage of convenience to a wealthy older man (Fred Applegate) desperate to have an heir is complicated by the sailor's return years later. Joshua Logan and S.N. Behrman provided an earthy book, and Harold Rome's score contains some of the most ardent and sweeping melodies ever written for the theater, including the title song, "Restless Heart" and "Never Too Late For Love." Fanny opened on November 4, 1954 at the Majestic Theater and played for a total of 888 performances.
