Though the story has the light-hearted, comic air of musicals from that era, Rodgers and Hart were very conscious of prejudices and used their musicals to send a creative message to the world that prejudice of any kind was a decreative act that restricts the natural flow of life. So when a group of young people decides to put on a show in a small Long Island town, they fight the show’s backer when he wants to restrict the players to whites only.
This is one of those feel good musicals where everything works out for the best and you go home from the theatre singing. The high-energy cast has great voices and some very innovative dance moves.
