The King's College to Stage New York Premiere of Charles Strouse & Lee Adams' A POUND IN YOUR POCKET
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...)
