The Boy Friend archiveSet in the roaring 20s, Polly Browne is a wealthy girl with only one thing in mind: to find a boyfriend. Her fear is that she will be loved not for herself, but for her money. After several meetings and misunderstandings, and in typical musical form, she finally finds her true love. This famous period musical includes such well known numbers as Won't You Charleston With Me?, A Room In Bloomsbury, It's Never Too Late To Fall In Love and the unforgettable title song.
