When librettist Alan Kimbrough hears a haunting melody drifting from his neighbor’s apartment, he becomes obsessed. On the hunt for a collaborator, “Kim” insists on meeting the man who wrote the composition. Delight in Ruth and Kim’s repartee as they raise eyebrows and match wits in a battle of the sexes that was ahead of its time. Will they make beautiful music together?
The Only Girl arrived on Broadway on November 2, 1914, as Suffragettes were marching in Manhattan, and World War I was well underway in Europe. It was a musical comedy about the present. Ruth’s song is the popular melody “When You’re Away,” a beautiful ballad by Herbert that has managed to remain in front of audiences well into the 21st century.
The Only Girl features Joanie Brittingham, Andrew Buck, Jack Cotterell, Alexa Devlin, Hannah Holmes, Emily Hughes, Sara Law, Barbee Monk, Mariah Mueller, Jonathan Fox Powers, Christopher Robin Sapp and David Seatter. (Cast subject to change.)
