Peggy-Ann Barnes dreams of a trip on a yacht, a ride in an airplane, marriage to a millionaire. Then she wakes up and philosophically goes back to being a drudge.
The dancing when it finally arrived, was an abrupt departure from the
collection of speedy routines and specialty numbers which is still standard
fare in musicals. It was a musical that ended with a whisper and a laugh.
The critics were unanimous in their praise. "From the beginning" said the New York Times, "Fields, Rodgers and Hart have brought freshness and ideas to the musical-comedy field, and in the new piece they travel a little further along the road". The powerful and influential Alexander Woollcott gave them a rave, as did Walter Winchell. In the Daily Mirror Robert Coleman placed them "in the foremost ranks of our youthful talented show builders" and praised their originality, humor, cleverness, and unbounded enthusiasm.
