    BWW TV Sneak Peek: Encores! Bells Are Ringing
    In rehearsal with the cast of Bells Are Ringing

    In Bells Are Ringing, a lonely girl who runs an answering service falls for a client she has met only by voice, and typical 1950s mayhem ensues. The score, by turns brassy, sweet and romantic, includes “Just in Time,” “The Party’s Over,” “I Met a Girl,” “Long Before I Knew You” and a fistful of other great tunes from one of Broadway’s greatest tunesmiths. The original production opened at the Shubert Theater on November 29, 1956, and played a total of 924 performances. Directed by Jerome Robbins and choreographed by Robbins and Bob Fosse, it won Tony awards for its stars Judy Holliday and Sydney Chaplin. Holliday recreated her role in the 1960 film version, costarring Dean Martin and directed by Vincente Minnelli.
