Goodspeed Opera House Version (1997)
This Parisian comedy set during the roaring twenties is perfectly romantic.
Praised by Variety for its “wit and style”, Lucky In The Rain is a heartwarming romp from Emmy and Peabody Award Winner Sherman Yellen (The Rothschilds). It brings to stage the 1920’s Paris comprised of Hemingway,
Picasso, and the Fitzgeralds.
Henderson Booth, a reporter new to Paris, meets fellow expatriate Jane Wiley who helps him secure a position with
the newspaper at which she works. In a whirlwind of jazz, deceit, miscommunications, and, lust, Booth and Ms. Wiley
cross paths with everyone from Josephine Baker to Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas. Though they both aren’t
always quite on the same path, the star-crossed lovers do eventually find their way back to each other - making them Lucky In The Rain!
Lucky In The Rain is a nostalgic and unabashedly sentimental love story that will delight audiences of all ages.
Featuring such popular standards as “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love,” “Doin’ The New Low Down,”, and an
unforgettable version of “Sunny Side Of The Street”, its score is nothing short of remarkable. Lucky In The Rain
has all the right ingredients for a delicious musical theatre treat.
