WHERE'S CHARLEY? NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW
Opening Night: March 17, 2011
Did He Like It?*
Frank Loesser's first Broadway score, immediately demonstrated the master's easy command of wit and romance, sophistication and high jinks. George Abbott's adaptation of Brandon Thomas' classic college farce Charley's Aunt delivered "Once in Love With Amy," "My Darling, My Darling" and "The New Ashmolean Marching Society" to the hit parade, and launched Loesser into the songwriting stratosphere. The musical opened at the St. James Theater on October 11, 1948, and played 792 performances. It was directed by George Abbott, choreographed by George Balanchine and starred Ray Bolger, who won a Tony Award for his performance.

"The most scrumptious English tea, with precisely cut cucumber sandwiches, warm scones, fresh clotted cream and a cake tray piled high, could hardly be more satisfying than the sweet, silly, thoroughly enchanting revival of the 1948 musical “Where’s Charley?,” at City Center through Sunday. The British director John Doyle’s staging of this rarely seen Frank Loesser show for Encores! is impeccable on every level, one of the most fully realized productions that this concert musicals series has presented in recent seasons.
