"Set in depression-era New York," read press notes, My Man Godfrey "highlights the economic gap between the rich and the poor. The musical revolves around a wildly rich and eccentric family (the Bullocks) and the 'forgotten man' (Godfrey), they hire as their butler straight from his home at the city dump. As the Bullock's dazzling, younger daughter (Irene) finds herself falling for the distinguished Godfrey, her once upper-crust family find themselves losing their riches."
