No, No, Nanette

Book by Otto Harbach and Frank Mandel
Lyrics by Irving Caesar and Otto Harbach
Music by Vincent Youmans

“The perfect musical comedy … No, No, Nanette proved … as it has proved everywhere it has been produced, that the public wants pretty tunes, clean, broad fun … Seldom have we seen an audience thoroughly stamp an entertainment with its complete approval.” These comments from the New York Herald Tribune following the show’s 1925 Broadway opening were echoed by virtually every review of the show—from its pre-Broadway almost year-long run in Chicago to its 665-performance run in London to its 400-plus showing in Paris to its multi-month run in Melbourne. The 1920s saw more than 500 musicals open on Broadway—from operettas to revues to musical comedies. Yet none captured the carefree spirit and “roar” of the decade better than this Vincent Youmans masterpiece. “Tea for Two” has become one of the world’s most popular tunes; “I Want to Be Happy” elicited multiple encores show after show; and the cheeky “You Can Dance with Any Girl at All” leads into the charged first-act finale. Who would not want to see the “perfect musical”? Here is your chance … and, for the first time anywhere in many decades, in its original 1920s orchestration!
