I agree that Charlie Girl sounds like it could be a lot of fun, and besides the title song, Charlie's establishing song, "Bells Will Ring," is a beauty too. That song would have graced any Broadway musical. And the American fascination at the time with all things "swinging London" would certainly have helped the show, too, in the mid-Sixties. Now, I'm not so sure that it could still be a Broadway hit, but stranger things have happened. (Hello, Me and My Girl!) Maybe some revival-minded group like Mufti or Encores should do a series of British musicals that never made it to Broadway, but are still worth a look.
