The 46th Street Theatre, Sep 1927
Good News!
Fri, Jul 28, 7:30 - 10:00 pm
Jaqua Concert Hall, The Shedd Institute
A smash hit in 1927 and again in an excellent 1993 revival, Good News! is a playful sendup of 1920s college life filled with both well-known and forgotten treasures from the classic American Songbook penned by that fabulous songwriting team Henderson, DeSylva & Brown. Our tale of undergrad life during the Roaring Twenties is set at fictional Tait College, where football star Tom Marlowe falls for studious tutor Connie Lane, vivacious flapper Babe O’Day pursues third-string player Bobby Randall, and Professor Charlotte Kenyon rekindles an old flame with Coach Bill Johnson, all in good humor, fun-filled dance, and such timeless icons of 1920s sheiks and flappers as “The Varsity Drag”, “The Best Things In Life Are Free”, “Button Up Your Overcoat”, “You’re The Cream In My Coffee,” “He’s A Ladies Man”, “Lucky In Love”, "Keep Your Sunny Side Up”, “Just Imagine” and “Life Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries”!
