Salad Days is a delightful, very fanciful show. I love the '82 revival cast album with Elizabeth Seal. Probably too British to ever go over on Broadway. There was an Off-Broadway production in '58 at the Barbizon-Plaza Theatre that opened during a newspaper strike and ran for 80 performances.

Charlie Girl is another fine musical. I have the '82 revival cast album with Cyd Charisse (of whom I am a devoted fan). Again probably too British for American audiences.

I wonder if York Theatre would consider doing these shows as part of their Mufti series.

Other excellent British musicals: Chrysanthemum, Spend Spend Spend, Robert and Elizabeth, Valmouth, Expresso Bongo, Follow That Girl among many others
