A group of teenagers are left without adult supervision when their folks hit the vaudeville summer circuit, and the local sheriff is determined to send the loafers to a work farm.
"BABES IN ARMS is almost too enjoyable for a theatergoer's good!"Ben Brantley The New York Times
"Pace, humor and presence that belies its age...there hasn't been a musical written in this decade with anywhere near as many first class numbers."The Day
"A score that is altogether superb...fresh, youthful, and utterly captivating."The New York Times
"It is cheering to rediscover the authentic joys of this 1937 Rodgers and Hart musical. An exhilarating hymn to youth... Hart's acerbic wit perfectly counterpoints Rodgers' innate romanticism, and his lyrics are a triumph of ingenious wordplay."Michael Billington The Guardian
"A pleasant outing featuring one of Broadway's most memorable scores."
— Jonas SchwartzJonas Schwartz Theatermania
