The vocal score with piano reduction for the 1920s musical comedy The Boyfriend by Sandy Wilson.
The assistant stage manager of a small-time theatrical company (Polly Browne) is forced to understudy for the leading lady (Rita) at a matinee performance at which an illustrious Hollywood director (Cecil B. DeThrill) is in the audience scouting for actors to be in his latest "all-talking, all-dancing, all-singing" extravaganza. Polly also happens to fall in love with the leading man (Tony) and imagines several fabulous fantasy sequences!
The first presentation of The Boyfriend was in April, 1953 and the first public performance in January, 1954. Ken Russell directed the film version in 1971, with Twiggy taking the leading role of Polly Browne.
