I might begin by making it clear that this is not a research paper in the regular sense of the phrase. My hours of preparation were eagerly spent in the mezzanine seats of various On- and Off-Broadway playhouses, or when time would permit and funds would not, in the standing room sections thereof, peering over the last row of orchestra seats. Each of the musical comedies I attended, seven in all, held a singular fascination for me. It seems a shame to disassemble them now in order to discover what made them tick, but that, after all, is the purpose of this paper.
