Boasting one of the greatest scores ever written, BABES IN ARMS is the quintessential backstage musical about a group of talented youngsters who defy the odds to successfully produce a show.
Featuring a hit parade of classic Rodgers and Hart songs including "My Funny Valentine," "Johnny One-Note," "Where Or When," "I Wish I Were in Love Again," "The Lady Is a Tramp," and more, BABES IN ARMS is a fun-filled tribute to everyone who has heeded the rallying cry "hey kids, let's put on a show!"
