The Boy Friend is a musical with music, lyrics, and book by Sandy Wilson. First staged on West End in 1953, it also opened on Broadway in 1954. Created as a parody and pastiche of musical comedies from the 1920s, the musical offers a glimpse into the carefree lifestyle of the rich during the 1920s.
The Boy Friend is set in a finishing school on the French Riviera and tells of the love that develops between Polly, an English heiress, and Tony, a delivery boy. Polly has long wanted to have a boyfriend of her own, but although she’s impatient to find someone she can love, she’s also cognizant of her father’s warning that suitors might just court her for her wealth.
When she meets Tony, she pretends to be an ordinary office secretary, and the two immediately hit it off. Things become complicated, however, when Polly’s father, Percival Browne arrives at the school. Also making an entry into the scene is the aging roué of a man known as Lord Brockhurst, who runs into a comical encounter with the prim-and-proper Percival. He is accompanied by his wife, Lady Brockhurst.
As it turns out, Lord and Lady Brockhurst are actually Tony’s parents. It is revealed to Polly and Tony that they are both scions of wealthy families, and they live happily ever after.
