Bells are Ringing Summary

Bells Are Ringing has a book and lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green and music by Jule Styne. It opened in 1956 and starred Judy Holliday. Four years later it was made into a movie also starring Judy Holliday.

This charming romantic comedy follows the exploits of Ella, a telephone answering service operator with a fascination for her client’s private lives. At Susanswerphone, Ella uses a variety of voices and personae to keep herself entertained. As she follows the lives of her customers, Ella becomes inextricably involved with a handsome playwright, a fledgling record company, and a dangerous crime ring. The tuneful score, with lyrics by Comden & Green, features some of Jule Styne’s most popular songs, including “Just in Time,” “The Party’s Over,” “Long Before I Knew You” and “Better Than a Dream.”
