About the show:

Du Barry Was a Lady (1939) has music and lyrics by Cole Porter and starred Bert Lahr, Ethel Merman and Betty Grable. In 1943, the musical was made into a movie starring Red Skelton, Lucille Ball and Gene Kelly. Songs include - "Friendship," "Well, Did You Evah!," "Give Him the Ooh-La-La," "It Ain't Etiquette," "But in the Morning, No!," "Katie Went to Haiti."

Louis Blore has his eye on the star of the floor show at the nightclub where he works. In an attempt to win her away from her fiancé, he gives him knock-out drops, but drinks the potion himself. During his delirium, Louis dreams that he is Louis XIV and that the girl is Du Barry, Louis’ mistress. His unsuccessful pursuit continues through 18th century Versailles until he awakens and realizes he would be better off with her friendship.
