Winner! Outer Critics Circle Best New Musical Award It’s big-time New York! Into which sweet little Ruby from faraway Hometown, U.S.A. has come to make it big on Broadway. Who should she chance to meet but Dick; a boy from home, a sailor and ambitious songwriter. By the end of the day, in true Hollywood fashion, Dick saves her doomed Broadway show with a smash tune, as Ruby becomes a star on the deck of a passing by battleship. A campy, long running Off Broadway hit based on the nostalgia of Hollywood musicals of the ‘30s; this show brought stardom to Bernadette Peters and was selected as “Best Musical of the Year” by Time, Newsweek, and the Outer Critics Circle.
