This vibrant, brash and colorful Tony-award winning musical opened 50 years ago. With a score by Charles Strouse (Bye Bye Birdie, Annie), lyrics by Lee Adams and book by Comden and Green (On the Town) and adapted from the film All About Eve, this revered showbiz tale features classic songs and a sharp book. Applause vividly paints the world of show business, where a conniving young actress attempts to usurp the career of a seasoned musical theatre star. Class triumphs with standards: “Applause,” “Welcome to the Theatre,” “Fasten Your Seat Belts,” “But Alive” and more.
