A dazzling tale of love and ambition! Joey Evans is the "pal" in question, a smooth-talking, small-time nightclub singer whose distinctive brand of soiled charm has gotten him chased from too many jobs in too many towns. Now he's landed a gig in Chicago, and the attentions of two very different women. Linda is a small town girl who is looking for a friendly face in the big city — and perhaps a little bit more. Vera is a wealthy socialite with the power to make Joey's dreams come true — and a husband who's rarely at home. Their story is played out with the help of a classic Broadway score, including such musical gems as "Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered," "Zip," and "I Could Write a Book."
