Summary

Outcasts yearning for a better life populate the bordellos and flophouses of a 1950s California seaside town in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Pipe Dream. At the heart of the story is the unlikely romance between Doc, a marine biologist, and Suzy, a vagrant who has recently taken up residence at a local brothel. This rare Rodgers and Hammerstein gem, not seen on the American stage in more than two decades, includes “All at Once You Love Her,” “The Next Time It Happens” and the wistful ballad “Everybody’s Got a Home but Me.” The original production opened at the Shubert Theatre on November 30, 1955, and ran for 246 performances. It was directed by Harold Clurman and starred William Johnson, Judy Tyler and Metropolitan Opera star Helen Traubel in her Broadway debut.
