Smiling, The Boy Fell Dead is a musical comedy from Off-Broadway's 1961 season that tells a classic success story-with great humor, the hero overcomes extraordinary obstacles to gain a girl, fortune, and family honor). Set in the Midwest at the turn of the last century, it spoofs Horatio Alger rags-to-riches tales.
The York Theatre Company's acclaimed Musicals in Mufti series of musical theatre gems, in a simply- staged, book-in-hand concert format, has presented over 90 shows from the past in its twenty-ninth year history. Mufti means: "in street clothes, without the trappings associated with a full production."
The performance schedule for Smiling, The Boy Fell Dead is Friday, February 21 at 8:00 p.m., Saturday, February 22 at *2:30 p.m. & 8:00 p.m., and Sunday, February 23 at *2:30 p.m. & 7:30 p.m. (*audience discussions follow the matinee performances).
