About this show

Lady, Be Good! ushered in the Golden Age of Broadway, from the mid‐'20s until the early '40s, when Broadway musicals were opportunities for great songwriters, great songs, and great performers. The Gershwins (George was hot off the triumph of Rhapsody in Blue) delivered a jazz‐age score that featured  "Fascinatin' Rhythm," as well as a song that got unaccountably dropped during the show's try out in Philadelphia, "The Man I Love."  The stars of the show included Fred and Adele Astaire playing a penniless brother and sister who crash a garden party in hopes of some quick nourishment.
