About this show

Peggy and Phil can't get married until he gets a raise and his boss tells him there'll be no raise unless President Roosevelt balances the budget. They dream they meet Roosevelt in Central Park and he tries to solve their joint financial problems. Although the President is stymied, he advises them, and they agree, to have faith and marry anyway. Songs include: "Have You Met Miss Jones?", "We're Going to Balance the Budget," "Sweet Sixty-Five," and "Spring in Vienna." I'd Rather Be Right, with music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Lorenz Hart, book by George S. Kaufman (who also directed) and Moss Hart, opened in November of 1937 and ran for 290 performances. George M. Cohan starred as President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
