Little Mary Sunshine Summary

With book, music, and lyrics by Rick Besoyan, and billed as "a musical about an old operetta"- Little Mary Sunshine gently spoofs such old-time favorites like Rose Marie and Naughty Marietta - but has a personality all its own. The plot is alittle bit of everything: Colorado Rangers led by stalwart Captain Jim; thelovely Mary Sunshine, her 'naughty' maid Nancy; a chorus of giggling schoolgirls and the ominous but benevolent Indian chief.

The New York Times called the musical "a merry and sprightly spoof of an era when 'justice always triumphed'" and won the Obie Award for Best Musical of the Season.

The original Off-Broadway production premiered in 1959 at the Orpheum Theatre with Eileen Brennan in the title role and ran 1,143 performances. Little Mary Sunshine has not been seen in New York for 45 years.
