The Love of Art!
Music by Barry Booth and Barry Fantoni, Book and Lyrics by Barry Fantoni
is a musical set in the world of Tin Pan Alley in 1950's London. The eponymous Art is a struggling songwriter, years ahead of his time, who has to come to terms with the harsh realities of the cheesy pop-music scene of the time.
Since it's original inception, Art!
has been re-titled The Love of Art!
. It was snapped up by the great Bill Kenwright Organisation since when it has languished in a drawer somewhere in his office. Bill has promised to mount a production, someday...
