Based on a novel by Patrick Dennis, this musical follows Belle Poitrine as she makes her way from humble beginnings to superstardom.
Little Me is the story of Belle Poitrine’s ascent from the wrong side of the railroad tracks in Venezuela, Illinois to the exquisite luxury of Southampton, Long Island, where the bar is concealed in a golden grand piano. The action is carried through a series of vignettes with integrated music and choreography. There are two Belle’s. There is the older Belle of today who is a genial, plump, self-indulgent, wealthy boozer. She is telling an interviewer the story of her life. The story is acted by the younger Belle, who plays the scenes as they occur. Early in the story she meets high-born Noble Eggleston. He cannot marry her because she does not have “wealth, culture and social position.” She achieves these goals through her association with seven men, some of whom help her progress by being taken dead at opportune moments.
