UnsungMusicalsCo. presents a reading of the hit 1926 musical comedy Peggy- Ann, featuring a book by Tony Award winner Herbert Fields and a score by the legendary songwriting team of Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart. Set almost entirely within a razzle-dazzle dream, with crazy characters and harebrained happenings, this frothy delight follows a charmingly idealistic Peggy-Ann Barnes as she journeys after the love of her life and quickly gets swept up in the lights of Broadway, the spirited high seas, and the steamy clubs of Havana.
