COMPETITION – LITTLE ME
LITTLE ME (based on the Novel by Patrick Dennis) is the story of Belle Poitrine’s ascent from the wrong side of the railroad tracks in Venezuela, Illinois to the exquisite luxury of Southampton, Long Island. The action is carried through a series of hilarious vignettes with integrated music and choreography.
Early in the story Belle meets high-born Noble Eggleston. He cannot marry her because she does not have “wealth, culture and social position.” She achieves these goals through her association with seven men, some of whom help her progress by being taken dead at opportune moments.
Opened on Broadway in in 1962 where all the men were played by Sid Caesar. The show opened in London’s West End in 1964 and starred Bruce Forsythe and was last revived in London in 1984 starring Russ Abbot.
Little Me has a truly dazzling score penned by Broadway heavyweight’s Cy Coleman and Carolyn Leigh and an outstanding book by Neil Simon. The score contains well known standards such as I’ve got your number, The other side of the tracks, Here’s to us and Deep down inside.
A sophisticated show of special appeal to community Theatre groups and stock operations. Said Walter Kerr of the New York Herald Tribune “Sum total: a blockbuster so genial it looks like a breeze.”
