Three Showers
(1920)




Sheet music for Three Showers, 1920


J. Turner Layton (Music)
William Carey Duncan (Book)
Henry Creamer (Lyrics)

5 April – 15 May, 1920


            A comedy with music, based on the old adage that, if you make a wish on a day with three showers, your wish will come true. Roberta Lee “Bob” White (Anna Wheaton) wishes for Peter Fitzhugh (Paul Frawley) and gets him. The show conveyed Broadway’s idea of 1920s rusticity in a number that found Miss Wheaton dressed as a “farmerette” in pink-and-white checked trousers and a bright red sash, and had her pushed around the stage in a wheelbarrow.
