"Mama, Look Sharp" from 1776. The most stirring theatrical experience of my childhood was 1776. The book was so literate and genuinely funny and, at least for me, extremely educational. The score is masterful, nowhere more so than in this haunted and devastating ballad about the human cost of war.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
