– The Stage
The plot follows the tale of the son of a prosperous New York banking family, the protagonist Bobby, and his relationship with Polly – the daughter of a family in charge of a flagging theatre business in Nevada. When sent to shut down the theatre, Bobbly instead falls in love with Polly and changes tack, deciding to save the theatre rather than close it – by putting on the show to end all shows!!
