Book by Joseph Fields and Jerome Chodorov / (Based upon the play My Sister Eileen by Joseph Fields and Jerome Chodorov and the stories by Ruth McKenney) / Music by Leonard Bernstein / Lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green / Sketches for 'What A Waste' by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. Winner of numerous tony awards, this is the New York musical. In the summer of 1935, two sisters from rural America head to the big apple to take a shot at their dreams. Ruth, a talented writer, and Eileen, an actress, quickly find out that life in the big city isn’t what they imagined. No money, a suspicious looking basement apartment in Greenwich Village, and taking whatever jobs they must to make ends meet, they chase their dreams, meet strange and interesting neighbours, and eventually fall in love.
