Mary Rodgers Guettel (in blue) and Linda Rodgers Emory (in white t-shirt behind Mary) pose with the cast of Goodspeed Musicals' Babes in Arms, part of the nation-wide celebration of Richard Rodgers' centennial.

Babes in Arms, which features Rena Strober and Bradford Anderson as teen sweethearts Billie and Val, plays through Sept 28 at Goodspeed Opera House in East Haddam, Connecticut. Joe DiPietro (I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change) penned a new libretto for the Rodgers and Hart musical, which also has several new songs in the Goodspeed incarnation, including "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World," "I Gotta Get Back to New York," "With a Song in My Heart" and "You Took Advantage of Me."
