With a tuneful Broadway score by the Tony-winning team of Lynn Ahrens and Stephennbsp; Flaherty, and a snappy book by Joseph Dougherty, ?My Favorite Year? is a classic musical comedy with a heart of gold.brbrIt?s 1954, and Benjy Stone, freshman writer on TV?s King Kaiser Comedy Cavalcade, is assigned the daunting task of baby-sitting veteran Hollywood swashbuckler Alan Swann while he's doing a livenbsp; guest appearance on the show. The effort to keep the reckless Swann off the booze and out of the papers during the rehearsal week nearly drives Benjy to the brink. But when he's given an unexpected glimpse into Swann's broken heart, Benjy begins to discover a thing or two about life and love. In addition to Benjy Stone and Alan Swann, the show is filled with juicy roles for comic actors, from the overbearing Belle Carroca, (played in both the original film and in the Lincoln Center production by Lainie Kazan) to the acerbic comedy writer Alice Miller, the role which garnered Andrea Martin a Tony Award. p/ppFor complete information on this and other Ahrens and Flaherty shows, as well as linksnbsp;to purchase CDs, vocal selections and other publications, please go tonbsp;a href="http://www.ahrensandflaherty.com/"www.AhrensandFlaherty.com/au. /ustrong /strong/p
