The Jazz Age lives on in this light romantic spoof of 1920s musical comedy. 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.

Set against the backdrop of the French Riviera, The Boy Friend tells the story of English heiress, Polly, who is longing for only one thing: a boy friend. Polly’s father, convinced that any boy who isn’t wealthy will court Polly strictly for her financial situation, forbids her to engage any potential suitors. Honoring his wishes, Polly explains to Tony, the messenger boy with whom she’s fallen in love, that she is no rich girl. This is just the tip of a mistaken identity iceberg, as love proceeds to find its way charmingly through nearly every member of the cast and bring them all to a happy ending.
