America's Sweetheart features music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Lorenz Hart and a book by Herbert Fields. It opened in 1931 and was directed by Monty Woolley, with a cast of 95 starring Jack Whiting and Ann Sothern. After a run of just 135 performances, the show vanished and has not been staged in New York in 83 years.
