A musical comedy, The Belle of New York is an American play in two acts, with book and lyrics by Hugh Morton and music by Gustave Kerker. The story is about a “Salvation Army girl who reforms a spendthrift, makes a great sacrifice and finds true love. Opening on Broadway at the Casino Theatre on 28 September 1897, it ran for only 64 performances. It subsequently transferred to London in 1898, where it was a major success, running for an almost unprecedented 674 performances, and became the first American musical to run for over a year in the West End.” Ref: Wiki.
