New York City
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes is the brassy and hilarious musical comedy about the activities of a beautiful gold-digger in the Roaring Twenties. This tuneful hit, adapted by Anita Loos and Joseph Fields from Miss Loos’ famous novel of the twenties, ran for close to two years in New York, from 1949 to 1951. Theatre-goers hailed the show as a return to the funny, girly musical entertainment as opposed to the serious operatic “musical play” which had been the main musical fare since the success of Oklahoma! Ever since, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes has been continuously popular.
Featuring music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Leo Robin, and book by Anita Loos and Joseph Fields (adapted from the novel by Anita Loos). Drew Scott Harris directs, with choreography by Darren Lee and musical direction by Ken Lundie.
