From Golden Globe and Emmy-Award winning writer Cheri Steinkellner, award-winning composer Georgia Stitt, and a dream-team of great American songwriters comes Hello! My Baby, a riotous new-fashioned musical comedy that reboots Berlin, Gershwin, Kern and a score of others; smartly weaving their updated hits into a timely romantic farce for all ages. Hello! My Baby runs March 24 - April 15, 2012 at Rubicon Theatre in Ventura.
Set on the sidewalks of New York in the early nineteen-teens, the charming tale weaves an updated Tin Pan Alley score into the story of streetwise song-sellers, sweatshop-workers, debutantes, gangsters, and Whiffenpoofs as they sing and dance through young love, gender-bending and many ukuleles.
Young Mickey McKee, King of the Song-Pluggers, dreams of writing the next million-selling song. The only problem is, Mickey can't write a note - a problem that finds a possible solution in Nelly Gold, a young factory girl with a talent for tunes and moxie to spare. Mickey and Nelly make beautiful music together until she puts on the trousers she once sewed, calls herself Ned, and becomes the new King of the Pluggers, and Mickey's arch-rival. These mismatched young lovers and their unlikely friends sing, dance, bicker, and coo from Debutante Balls to Delancey Street, confronting class struggles, social reform, gender-swapping, and street-thugs, as they sell the songs we're all still humming a hundred years later.
The RTC production will also bow in Santa Barbara at the Lobero Theatre April 25 - 29, 2012. Click Here for more information.
