The York Theatre Company continues its 2005-2006 "Musicals in Mufti" season with The Great Big Radio Show! featuring book by Philip Glassborow and Nick McIvor, music and lyrics by Philip Glassborow, and arrangements and dance music by David Rhind-Tutt. The show is a funny and tuneful musical comedy first presented in London in 1992, now seeing its American Premiere at The York. It takes place in 1933, in the Radio Building, New York, and the big Saturday night broadcast is just about to go on the air, live. It's the Great Big Radio Show, a weekly variety program starring Gloria Pilbeam. The only trouble is...she can't be found. Bandleader Blue Woodward has to find a replacement while the show is actually on the air...without letting the sponsor know what is going on, and in spite of some desperate hoodlums in the studio!
