Based on the screenplay for the 1977 film by Neil Simon

It's hard to go wrong with this warm, light-hearted show that is one of the musical theatre's rare modern romantic comedies.

THE GOODBYE GIRL is based on Neil Simon's well-known film about an unlikely romance between Paula, a bitter, single mother who has been jilted one too many times, and Eliot, the opinionated actor who shows up on her doorstep with a lease to sublet her apartment. It features the same unique humor that has made Neil Simon the most popular playwright in Broadway history. Add a score by Marvin Hamlisch (A CHORUS LINE) and David Zippel (CITY OF ANGELS,  Disney's Hercules and Mulan) and you have an instant contemporary classic!

Sleeping Beauty walked with us once upon a dream in 1959, and in 1967, Baloo gave us life lessons in the bare necessities.
