Make a Wish the Musical Lyrics

Make a Wish is a musical with a book by Preston Sturges and Abe Burrows, music and lyrics by Hugh Martin.

Based on Sturges' screenplay for the 1935 film The Good Fairy, which in turn is based on the 1930 play of the same name by Ferenc Molnár as translated by Jane Hinton.

Winter Garden Theatre, New York - Opened I8 April 1951; closed 14 July 1951 (102 perfs). The production was produced by Harry Rigby, Jule Styne and Alexander H. Cohen; staged by John C. Wilson; and choreographed by Gower Champion. Raoul Pène Du Bois designed the sets, lights, and costumes for the production. The original cast included Nanette Fabray as Janette, Harold Lang as Ricky, Melville Cooper as Marius Frigo, Stephen Douglass as Paul Dumont, Helen Gallagher as Poupette, Phil Leeds as Dr. Francel, Eda Heinemann as Dr. Didier, and Howard Wendell as the policeman.

The show depicts the adventures of Janette, a French orphan on a tour of Paris, who breaks away from her group to visit a Paris not included in guided tours. Courted by a middle-aged millionaire, Marius, she ultimately settles for a penniless young artist, Paul. A secondary love interest, Poupette and Ricky, bring some challenging choreography to life.

1951 Broadway
