Step back to the 1950’s with us in this not-so-often produced gem!
This charming romantic comedy follows the exploits of Ella, a telephone answering service operator with a fascination for her client’s private lives. At Susanswerphone, Ella uses a variety of voices and personae to keep herself entertained. As she follows the lives of her customers, Ella becomes inextricably involved with a handsome playwright, a fledgling record company, and a dangerous crime ring. BELLS ARE RINGING is a delightful showcase for a singing comedienne, filled with heart and humor. The tuneful score, with lyrics by Comden & Green, features some of Jule Styne’s most popular songs, including “Just in Time,” “The Party’s Over,” “Long Before I Knew You” and “Better Than a Dream.”
