Lyrics by Marshall Barer
In this classic Broadway retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's The Princess and the Pea, Princess Winifred the Woebegone, with the whole kingdom rooting for her, must swim moats, endure all-night dance-a-thons, and feel a pea through 20 mattresses in order to impress the highly discriminating Queen and win the hand of her Prince Dauntless. Nominated for Tony Awards for Best Musical in 1960 and Best Revival of a Musical in 1997, this musical delight features the songs "Shy," "Happily Ever After," "Many Moons Ago," "In a Little While," and "Yesterday I Loved You."  A show for the whole family! (Rogers and Hammerstein)
