About the Musical
High hopes are riding on director Julian Marsh’s new show, Pretty Lady.
But Julian has doubts about his star, Dorothy Brock, whose wealthy admirer is also the show’s backer. Events take an unexpected turn, however, when newcomer Peggy Sawyer wins a place in the chorus – and in Julian’s heart.
