The Education of H*Y*M*A*N K*A*P*L*A*N
The Education of H*Y*M*A*N K*A*P*L*A*N
Based on stories by Leo Rosten. Book by Benjamin Bernard Zavin. Lyrics and music by Paul Nassau and Oscar Brand.

Cast: 9m., 7w. (flexible chorus.) This enchanting Broadway musical is filled with bright comedy, unexpected romance and a refreshing love of America. An assortment of immigrants are attending night classes at a New York public school where they strive, with the help of a bewildered teacher, to learn enough English and American history to pass their naturalization test. Hyman Kaplan, the most enthusiastic student, makes comic blunders of majestic proportions. He confuses the Boy Scout oath with the Declaration of Independence and his mixup of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar and Macbeth is almost awe-inspiring as it ends with a ringing, "Life is full of sound and phooey." The contagion of Hyman's enthusiasm captivates Rose, who is first in the class. Multiple simple sets.
