The Boy Friend (Play)

Cast: Marie Tysoe, John Parker, Beth Dean Elizabethan Theatre  Sydney 1956  Playbill / Program.


The Boy Friend (sometimes misspelled The Boyfriend) is a musical by Sandy Wilson. The musical’s original 1954 London production ran for 2,078 performances, making it briefly the third-longest running musical in West End or Broadway history (after Chu Chin Chow and Oklahoma!) until it was surpassed by Salad Days. This musical marked Julie Andrews’ American stage debut.

Set in the carefree world of the French Riviera in the Roaring Twenties, The Boy Friend is a comic pastiche of 1920s shows (in particular early Rodgers and Hart musicals such as The Girl Friend). Its relatively small cast and low cost of production makes it a continuing popular choice for amateur and student groups.

Sandy Wilson wrote a sequel to The Boy Friend. Set ten years later, and, appropriately, a pastiche of 1930s musicals (in particular those of Cole Porter) it was titled Divorce Me, Darling! and ran for 91 performances at London’s old Globe Theatre in 1965. It is sometimes revived as a “double bill” with The Boy Friend.
