Helen of Troy New York is a highly comical 1923 musical written by George S. Kaufman and Marc Connelly, with music by Bert Kalmar and Harry Ruby.

Features great songs such as All Alone Monday, Cry Baby, Nevertheless, and What Makes a Businessman Tired? and many, many more!

A rare slapstick musical discovered by Medicine Show in 1986 and saved from oblivion.

It mocks business, advertising, and the traditional love story. The cast moves from Troy, NY, the home of the stiff collar industry (and the YArrow Collar Man -- Act I) and NY City, the home of Art Deco and Very High Fashion (Act II).

Everyone's in love with the wrong one and ends up with the right one (except for the bad guy) and business ethics are improved (it's a fantasy).

Lots of music and dancing and costume changes. And a jazz band! Let's hope there are no blizzards.
