This Tony Award winning musical has fairy tale leanings with a princess, a far off country, wedding bells and a happily ever after. The story of Sally Adams, a glamorous and exuberant Washington DC widow with a penchant for parties but a complete lack of experience in the diplomatic corps becomes US Ambassador to the tiny duchy of Lichtenburg. It's not long before her down-to-earth, typically undiplomatic manner captivates the handsome Prime Minister and encourages the romance of her aide with an enchanting young princess. Of course, the 'stuffed shirts' in Washington conspire to get her recalled, but all ends happily, helped along by one of Irving Berlin’s most memorable scores including “You're Just in Love,” “It's A Lovely Day Today,” and “Hostess With The Mostes' on the Ball.”
