Poster THE BOYFRIEND - 1974

THE BOYFRIEND is a musical by Sandy Wilson, first performed in the West End in 1954. It is set in the twenties, in the swankiest hot spot on the French Rivera.

Polly Brown, an English heiress attending Mme. Dubonnet's Finishing School, falls in love with Tony the delivery boy. Recalling her father's advice to beware of fortune seekers, she poses as a simple working girl to avoid that possibility. Little does she know, Tony is the missing son of millionaire Lord Brockhurst, and when both her father, Percival Brown, and Lord and Lady Brockhurst unexpectedly arrive on the scene, things start to get complicated.
