Synopsis

In the witty, enigmatic "Nothing Can Be Something," the lyricist matches the famous ability of author Hans Christian Andersen to combine sweetness, humor and wisdom; and with his climactic love song, "Your Face," he equals or surpasses his familiar Academy Award song, "Love Is a Many Splendored Thing." A handsome prince, embittered by a scheming woman, has run away. His companion is a tough rogue, loyal and brave. Unspeakable villains are conspiring to ruin a neighbor king by exploiting his love of finery, and they throw the companions into a dungeon. A beautiful princess sneaks in at midnight with food for the starving vagabonds. They soon have a chance to match wits with the palace schemers, and there is a very surprising ending! The score by top professionals is thrilling.
