The Blue Hill Troupe takes you back to the Jazz Age in this light romantic spoof of 1920s musicals. Written in the fifties as "a new musical of the twenties," The Boy Friend is still considered the most successful and witty of the send-up musicals, and is filled to the brim with catchy tunes, tongue-in-cheek moments, and cheerful dance numbers.
The Troupe is an all-volunteer group producing a Gilbert & Sullivan operetta and a Broadway musical each year since 1923 for the benefit of a New York City-based charity.
A Troupe favorite, The Yeomen of the Guard, or The Merryman and His Maid, is considered Sullivan's finest score. Amidst the usual puns and topsy-turvy plot complications, Gilbert and Sullivan explored tender emotion and themes of joy and despair, love and sacrifice.
