Billy instantly falls in love with a beautiful girl he meets in a taxi. When he discovers she’s boarding the same London-bound ship his boss and co-worker Reno are boarding, he sneaks on himself. The beautiful girl is engaged to a stuffy British aristocrat, but that doesn’t stop the love-struck Billy. With the help of other passengers, Billy seeks to evade Reno, whose love he doesn’t return, and capture the heart of the girl of his dreams—all without hurting anyone’s feelings.

Originally penned in 1934 with music and lyrics by American composer and songwriter Cole Porter, this musical comedy was revived on Broadway in 2011 and won a Tony Award for Best Musical Revival that same year. Widely considered the definitive musical comedy of the 1930's, the AM New Yorker calls it, “a giddy explosion of escapist romance, combining old-fashioned farce, extended dance breaks and light, breezy songs.”
