Product Description
2-CDs with 15 songs and dialogue from the Comic Opera Guild's 2006 performance of the musical comedy with music by Jerome Kern and book by Otto Harbach.

The original Broadway production opened at the Globe Theatre on October 15, 1931, moved to the George M. Cohan Theater on May 24, 1932, and ran for a total of 395 performances, an unusual success for the Depression years. The show was created as a vehicle for actress and violinist Odette Myrtil. Other cast members included Lawrence Grossmith, Georges Metaxa, Bettina Hall, Eddie Foy Jr., Josť Ruben and the Albertina Rasch Dancers. The title comes from the second line of the nursery rhyme "Hey Diddle Diddle" ("...the cat and the fiddle").

The 1932 London production by C. B. Cochran at the Palace Theatre featured Alice Delysia, Peggy Wood and Francis Lederer. A film version was made in 1934 by MGM, with Jeanette MacDonald and Ramon Novarro.

Songs include:
The Night Was Made for Love
The Love Parade
Try to Forget
Poor Pierrot
She Didn't Say Yes
One Moment Alone
A New Love Is Old
