by BWW News Desk - Feb 3, 2016

The King's College is proud to present the New York premiere of Charles Strouse and Lee Adams' virtually unknown first musical,†A Pound in Your Pocket.† Strouse and Adams had just met as two young, aspiring artists when they collaborated on†Pound†in 1958. The show, adapted from a radio play written for Helen Hayes and based on the Charles Dickens novel†The Old Curiosity Shop, had a short-lived albeit critically-acclaimed regional theater run, but soon became eclipsed by the international success of†Bye, Bye Birdie. Now, almost six decades later, this history-making work can finally be seen by New York audiences. (more...)
