About This Show

For Goodness Sake, starring Fred & Adele Astaire, opened on March 21, 1922 and transferred to London a year later (then called Stop Flirting). After the Prince of Wales, the future Edward VIII, came to see it, the Astaires were propelled into the European artistic and social limelight. This show has not been seen in New York in 92 years. The book was by Fred Jackson with lyrics by Arthur Jackson, music by William Daly and Paul Lannin and “additional music” by George Gershwin and “additional lyrics” by Arthur Francis (Ira Gershwin’s early nom de plume). Songs include “I’ll Build a Stairway to Paradise”, “Oh, Gee, Oh, Gosh”, and “The Whichness of Whatness”.
