    Where’s Charley?, Frank Loesser’s first Broadway score, immediately demonstrated the master's easy command of wit and romance, sophistication and high jinks. George Abbott’s adaptation of Brandon Thomas’ classic college farce Charley's Aunt delivered “Once in Love With Amy,” “My Darling, My Darling” and “The New Ashmolean Marching Society” to the hit parade, and launched Loesser into the songwriting stratosphere. The musical opened at the St. James Theater on October 11, 1948, and played 792 performances. It was directed by George Abbott, choreographed by George Balanchine and starred Ray Bolger, who won a Tony Award for his performance.
