When a wealthy banker becomes disillusioned with women and vows that the only woman for him would have to be an angel, it's only a song or two before she comes flying in through the window!

He marries her only to discover that angels can sometimes be troublesome, having none of the human failings that allow us mere mortals to tolerate one another. Her inability to be in any way dishonest results in her alienating everyone, from the banker's biggest depositor to society's grand dame.

Through some side-splitting shenanigans, Angel is brought down to earth for what is- naturally- a marriage made in heaven.

REVIEWS:

"It's a lovely idea for a stage musical. Hart's lyrics have verve, wit and a springtime poetry. Rodgers' music is fresh and alive, and the book (by the two of them) is surprisingly urbane and sophisticated."

New York Post

"Glorious Rodgers melodies... We can revisit the topical humor and the wicked double entendre and recall why Lorenz Hart was so good at what he did. And we can relive the joyous thrill of discovering a genuine show-stopping hit in the aforementioned "At the Roxy Music Hall," which is so well-conceived that it scores big even without a corps of Balanchine dancers to help put it over; so funny that you laugh out loud."
