Musical (1939)


Musique: Ralph Rainger
Paroles: Leo Robin
Livret: Laurence Schwab
Production à la création:

The musical opened on October 21, 1939, at the Shubert Theatre, New Haven, Connecticut, and then opened on October 23 at the Shubert Theatre in Boston, where it permanently closed on November 4. The musical had been slated to open on Broadway at the 46th Street Theatre on November 7.

For the musical, Lee Dixon (who later created the role of Will Parker in Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II’s Oklahoma!) was “Dynamite,” and Mary Martin (here in her first musical after her sensational Broadway debut in Leave It to Me! one year earlier) was “Stonewall.” But Nice Goin’ was the first of two flop musicals that starred Martin (Dancing in the Streets opened in early 1943, and it too played at the Shubert in Boston [as well as the Boston Opera House], but even its promisingly titled song “Got a Bran’ New Daddy” didn’t help). It wasn’t until late 1943 that Martin finally returned to Broadway in a smash (Ogden Nash and Kurt Weill’s One Touch of Venus).

1 Nice Goin'! peut-être considéré comme un Flop musical
