Additional Info

This famous "lost" musical, a hit in London in the thirties and later a triumph for Gertrude Lawrence and Elizabeth Welch, was recently restaged to bravos in London. Its whimsical story follows innocent Evangeline Edwards as she bids farewell to a Swiss finishing school and sets off across Europe and looking for love and adventure. She gets into one scrape after another and is rescued by a series of unsuitable men (a French producer, Russian musician, Austrian nudist, Italian count, Greek magnate, Turkish Pasha and a eunuch all played by the same actor).
