SALLY 2001

About the Album: 2 CDs with 22 songs from the Comic Opera Guild's 2005 performance of Sally, a musical comedy by Jerome Kern, with a book by Guy Bolton and lyrics by Clifford Grey, Buddy De Sylva, Anne Caldwell and P. G. Wodehouse. Inspired by the 19th century show, Sally in our Alley, it was originally produced by Florenz Ziegfeld, opening on December 21, 1920 at the New Amsterdam Theater on Broadway. The show ran for 570 performances, one of the longest runs on Broadway at the time and one of the most successful shows of the 1920s. The score revisits Kern favorites, including "Look for the Silver Lining" and "Whip-poor-will" (with lyrics by De Sylva, from the flop "Zip Goes a Million"); "The Lorelei" (lyrics by Anne Caldwell); and "You Can't Keep a Good Girl Down" and "The Church 'Round the Corner" (lyrics by Wodehouse). At the request of Ziegfeld, Victor Herbert was engaged to write the music to "The Butterfly Ballet" in Act Three. The plot hinges on the mistaken identity of Sally, a waif dishwasher at the Alley Inn, who poses as a famous foreign ballerina and rises to fame and finds love through joining the Ziegfeld Follies.
