Product Description
2 CDs with 26 songs from Very Good Eddie, a musical with a book by Guy Bolton and Philip Bartholomae, music by Jerome Kern, and lyrics by Schuyler Green, Herbert Reynolds, Elsie Janis, Harry B. Smith and John E. Hazzard, as performed by the Comic Opera Guild in 2005. Many of the songs included are not on the DRG recording. The story was based on the farce Over Night by Bartholomae. The show was the second of the "Princess Theatre musicals" and was a hit for Bolton and Kern, leading to further successful Princess Theatre productions. The plot focuses on Eddie Kettle, a very short young man newly married to Georgina, who is extremely tall. They board a Hudson River Day Line boat headed for the Honeymoon Inn in Poughkeepsie. Also on board are extremely tall athlete Percy Darling and his very short bride Elsie. Chaos ensues when the couples cross paths and accidentally trade partners.
