The S. S. American is sailing between New York and England with a colourful, comedy assemblage of passengers. Meet Reno Sweeney - a popular nightclub singer and former evangelist. Her pal Billy Crocker, a lovelorn Wall Street broker, has come aboard to try to win the favour of his beloved Hope Harcourt (who is actually engaged to another passenger, Sir Evelyn Oakleigh).
Throw into the mix a second-rate conman named Moonface Martin, aka “Public Enemy #13”, and you have a song and dance-filled cocktail of amusing antics as Reno and Moonface try to help Billy win the love of his life.
With music and lyrics by Cole Porter, this age-old tale of boy-meets-girl and the antics that ensue is a heart-warming and entertaining musical that will have you tapping your fingers (and your toes).
