Based on the novel "Little Me: The Intimate Memoirs of that Great Star of Stage, Screen and Television/Belle Poitrine," by Patrick Dennis, Little Me has a book by Neil Simon, music by Cy Coleman and lyrics by Carolyn Leigh. The original production starred Sid Caesar as Belle's six love interests. It opened at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre Nov. 17, 1962, and ran for 257 performances.
Little Me, Simon's first musical, "is the story of the glamorous Belle Poitrine (Rachel York as young Belle, Judy Kaye as older Belle), a self-invented celebrity who has spent her life in pursuit of wealth, culture and social position," according to press notes. "Tony Award-winner Christian Borle will play all six of Belle's oddball lovers, who range from an innocent college boy to an octogenarian lecher to the dying king of a tiny European country that doesn't seem to exist."
