Ira Gershwin and Guy Bolton were rewriting GIRL CRAZY as late as 1978, as that is the version of the script that I read, licensed from TAMS-WITMARK about 10 years ago. It had a bunch of interpolations, including the song "Strike Up the Band" as a mayoral campaign song.

This may have been the last project Ira actually worked on, other than preserving his and George's papers and comments on the Secaucus lode of 1982.

Regardless of the mixed reactions, I would've still liked to have seen it.

I was just thinking it should get a Broadway revival. Polly looks like such fun to play!
