Oh, Lady! Lady!
(Jerome Kern, P.D. Wodehouse,
Guy Bolton)

Oh, Lady! Lady! by Jerome Kern, P.G. Wodehouse, and Guy Bolton, was the second, and final, Princess Theatre Musical written (in 1918) by these three creators. The bridegroom’s old flame arrives unexpectedly on his wedding day and the nuptials are called off - but only long enough for a second act set in Greenwich Village to solve all. It romanticized the lives of aspiring theatre people and originally starred Ruby Keeler, Eddie Foy, Jr. and Jimmy Durante. Songs include: "Bill," "Not Yet," "When Ships Come Home," "Greenwich Village," "Little Nest."
