Description

Where's Charley?, a musical spoof of a classic English farce, is a hilarious parody of Victorian social lunacy. The only collaboration between Broadway veterans George Abbott and Frank Loessor, Where's Charley? is a captivating and very funny romp. Set in 1902 in Oxford University, Two Oxford chums, Jack and Charley, have invited two lovely young ladies to their college rooms for lunch. Charley has arranged for Donna Lucia, his Brazilian aunt, to act as chaperone, as required by Victorian morality. When Donna Lucia fails to arrive, the quick thinking lads hatch a plot to impersonate her. Soon, poor Charley is in a constant whirl, portraying both himself and his aunt, all the while fighting off the amorous advances of a middle-aged suitor.

Whoever said that college life was dull? It wasn't dull back at Oxford, and it won't be dull at Sheridan when Where's Charley? hits the boards.

Music and lyrics by Frank Loessor. Book by George Abbott. Based on Brandon Thomas's play Charley’s Aunt.
